I’ve had a project in mind for a over a year now. Rather simple. But I’ve no idea where to start and or what parts i need.
So I’ll explain the project. As from the title. I’m looking to have a four inch or maybe smaller screen displaying footage from a camera placed near the the end of my BB rifle. (I play airsoft). And I’d like the screen placed over my right eye. If I’m able to do what id like. I’ll have a friend construct me an adjustable frame to house the screen.
I’ve no idea what Pi or parts or what screen would be best to use.
Keeping in mind this all needs to be powered from a powerbank I’ll have in a pouch on my tac-vest.
I’ve had a look at a HyperPixel 4.0 and from what i can work out it connects to a Pi 4 using a GPIO? Connecter which then sits on top of the pi 4. If this is true. Is there a way to house the Pi 4 in a pocket and have say a MiniHDMI cable connected from one to another? And then have a long enough cable to attach a camera. One that i can at least unplug when taking my kit off. Or would it be better housing the Pi 4 on the gun somewhere with the camera attached and a cable to screen?
Any suggestions and help would be very much appreciated.
