  • German engineer Gaurav Singh has designed and built an industrial USB box camera in a custom 3D-printed case that not only accepts interchangeable lenses, but the image sensor can also be swapped out as needed.
  • The latest in a long line of DIY camera projects from the electronics, software, FPGA and embedded design engineer sees the electronics split across three 27 x 27-mm (1 x 1-in), six-layer circuit boards bolted to each other.
  • Indeed, Singh appears to have used an IMX219 sensor from a Raspberry Pi camera module for his working prototype and notes that there’s “not much image processing going on on the camera die it self.”
