Introducing brand new AnyCase Kit!

by Eugene Pomazov

10 minutes, and you have a case for any of your experiments!

StereoPi AnyCase Kit

Quick prototyping is a must. As a maker you must know, that sometimes some minor inconvenience (like lack of appropriate bolts and nuts) leads to the huge time lost.

That’s why we developed this useful kit for a very quick prototyping. With the AnyCase kit you can assemble your setup for just 10 minutes, before you go to your 3D printer or laser cut machine.

Let’s review a problems makers faced with in their experiments, and a features of AnyCase for each case.

At the very beginning you don’t know, which stereobase you will choose.

StereoPi AnyCase Kit

Are you need 65 mm or 200 mm? You can just suggest, but you will know only when you try. That’s why we added 4 different mount plates with the wide range of stereobases:

  • 25 mm - for macro 3D photo and short-range computer vision
  • 65 mm - it's a classic, no comments
  • 120 mm - for mid-range stereoscopic photo and indoor robots
  • 200 mm - long-range stereoscopic photo and outdoor robotics

So you can choose your size easy.

360 spherical video and photo

StereoPi AnyCase 360 degree setup

You can mention, that our 120 mm stereobase plate has some additional holes. They are intended for 360 degree, or "back-to-back" cameras setup, and mounting StereoPi board at the side of this plate. In this case you have vertical assembly.

Assembly time

StereoPi AnyCase nylon spacers kit

With the M2 spacers kit included you’ll spend about 10 minutes for your assembly. And if you decide to change stereobase, you need another 5 minutes to replace camera mount plate. So time is playing on your side! By the way, did you know that both StereoPi and Raspberry Pi cameras have the same M2 mounting holes?

You need to shorten/enlarge/bend your camera ribbon.

StereoPi AnyCase Camera Ribbons

When your stereobase differs from the classic 65 mm, you need to bend your camera ribbons. You can also need shorter or longer ribbons. In this case you’re afraid to damage your ribbon.

That’s why we’ve added 12 camera ribbons!

  • 4 pcs of 5cm ribbons
  • 4 pcs of 10 cm ribbons
  • 4 pcs of 15 cm ribbons

Now you can keep calm and do your bold experiment with the ribbons configuration!

And some assembly examples

How to buy

Right now AnyCase batch is produced, and we expecting delivery to Crowd Supply stock at the end of December, so the kits should be fulfilling in mid-January. New "AnyCase Accessories Kit" option already available in the list of StereoPi pledges.

Happy making!

StereoPi AnyCase Kit

With AnyCase Kit you can get your setup in a 10 minutes, before you go to your 3D printer or laser cut machine! You can assemble any case with 25, 65, 120 or 200 mm stereobase, or for 360 degree video with just a screwdriver! And you have 12 more camera ribbons now, do not afraid to bend you cables in your bold experiments!


$69

StereoPi Slim Edition

Perfect for DIY ninjas and those wanting to embed StereoPi in a tight space. This board is the same as the standard edition, but without all the bulky connectors - the Ethernet RJ45 jack, GPIO header, and dual USB Type-A connector have not been populated. To use this board, you will need your own Raspberry Pi Compute Module, cameras, and camera ribbon cables. Two short power cables already included.


$89

StereoPi Standard Edition

The world of stereoscopic video awaits! This board is the ultimate interface between two cameras and a Raspberry Pi Compute Module. It comes with all the bells and whistles, including Ethernet, dual USB ports, GPIO header, microSD slot, HDMI output, and more. To use this board, you will need your own Raspberry Pi Compute Module, cameras, and camera ribbon cables. Two short power cables already included.


$125

StereoPi Starter Kit

This kit has everything you need to get started right away. The kit includes one StereoPi Standard Edition board, two V1 cameras (w/ ~20 cm ribbon cables), one Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 + Lite, and everything in the StereoPi Accessories Kit (two short ribbon cables, one USB power cable, two power cables, one V1/V2 dual-camera mounting plate, and one wide-angle dual-camera mounting plate). We've also included a microSD card pre-imaged with Raspbian and all the stereoscopic video and image demos you see on this project page.


$199

StereoPi Deluxe Kit

This kit includes everything in the StereoPi Starter Kit and adds two wide-angle (160°) cameras (w/ ~20 cm ribbon cables). With this kit, you'll be able to run all of the demos shown on this project page and start experimenting on your own. You will reign supreme over your stereoscopic domain.
