New reward ! ScorPi, a flexible arm for the Raspberry Pi Camera board
We are now almost at 95% with still 11 days to go thanks to your faith and support! Success seems to be near at hand.
So a big thanks to all of you, the walls of our studio studio are vibrating harder, better, faster, stronger every day, we are now working on the production process, organizing all stages of manufacturing, but there is something else...
In order to shake things up, we are proudly and officially presenting to you our new product: the ScorPi, a flexible arm for the Raspberry Pi Camera Board. It holds the camera steady in any direction you choose. It is easy, intuitive and extremely handy.
The arm is made of a 20cm long flexible tube (gooseneck). It plugs solidly to the RCA port and is mounted on the board with a single screw. We added a slot in the Sweetbox in order to slide the cable of the camera and plug it on the CSI port. It is so thin that no cap is needed.
The connecting components are custom designed by Graspinghand and will be CNC machined especially for this product in collaboration with a small, local workshop. We came up with this solution as none of the pre-fabricated parts available in the market completely met our standards.
Its price for Kickstarter is only £8.
Last but not least, the ScorPi is designed to work with any or no case at all because we intended it as a gift for all those pi fanatics that have eagerly been expecting the camera board over the last months. That is why you can also have it in a reward separately from the Sweetbox.
We hope you enjoy,
have a good day,
