  • Pano Viewer for Raspberry Pi

    I am trying to make some digital picture frames to give as holiday gifts. My idea is to get an inexpensive monitor (<$100) that has an HDMI input, and a Raspberry Pi computer (~$45) to drive a Pano Viewer (specifically the one that comes with PTGui), then load it with one of my panos which will rotate in the display. I will post a materials list if I ever get it to work. It is theoretically possible, and only a matter of time.

    So here is the question: anyone know of anyone already doing this?

    I think it is easier to get a used tablet for this purpose, right?

      Got me thinking. There are a host of HDMI monitors in the 20" range that are on the market. These monitors have the advantage that they can sit on a table or hang on a wall, and display a larger photo than the typical 7" tablet. The Raspberry Pi has WiFi capability (uses a USB port on a 2, built in on a 3) and the default operating system has a nice browser (Epiphany) included. Since just about every home has a WiFi signal, that could reach my web site, and hence reach any one of my spherical panoramas. E.g., http://robertrose.photos/Room_Gyro/Room_Gyro.htm Maybe I can program Epiphany to periodically clear the cache and reload and correspondingly post a new spherical panorama to the website, so make it capable of pushing out new panoramas on a recurring basis.

        Instead of running an heavy app viewer, i would go with a lighter web server and pannellum or something similar. A raspberry py would excel at running that.
