Overview

As a YouTuber, I'm always looking for ways to streamline different tasks. Live streaming is definitely something that has the opportunity to be a LOT simpler. It would be nice if you just had a camera that you can take with you, turn on, and live stream. So that will be the primary goal of this project: to make a dedicated camera for live streaming to YouTube.

My idea is to make a video camera using a Raspberry Pi 3, 2.8" LCD Touchscreen, and the Pi Camera as the basic platform. We'll also need a small USB microphone to record audio, and some type of rechargeable battery to power it all. Then I'm going to 3D print a custom case shaped like the YouTube logo to power it all.

More of a visual learner? Then feel free to watch my four part video series on making this project from start to finish! View the successes and pitfalls as I go step by step through the entire project.
