This London “Parkour Park” looks so much like a city that it makes you wonder what a city would look like if a city was deliberately built for parkour. Lots of steel pipes so you can shimmy straight up walls, convenient grabs and handholds on second-story ledges, rubberized landing spots, that sort of thing.
Wearable computing device by genericsoma uses cheap materials and a Raspberry Pi computer - video embedded below:
I wanted to do something interesting with my RPi and a 2.4” TFT LCD. Google Glass was hot in the news, so I’ve decided to hack something similar. The semi-transparent mirror was extracted from Eye of Horus Beamsplitter, and the projection lens is cut from a plastic 3x Fresnel magnifying lens. The box and mounting parts are 3D-printed from ABS. Head strap is for GoPro. One RPi USB port is used for WiFi, and second for 2.4Ghz small wireless keyboard/mouse combo. All together cost around 100$.
This is the first version which has basic functionality, but hopes to include more features such as voice recognition and augmented reality.
