rangefinder build
« on: Feb 02, 2017, 12:31 AM »
sorry, i dont have pictures for this :( but what i do have is an imagination. which is pretty close. anyways, let paint in words for you.
we all know that mandalorians in the whole Star Wars universe can use their rangefinder for whatever use they need.
 actually, i do have a picture but only of the rangefinder. sorry, i lied. but sorry bout the lie, anyways, the rangefinder is connected to the visor in a way. from seeing a lot of y'alls posts about cameras and sensors, i thought 'hmm it'd be cool to have a shatter resistant screen as the visor and have multiple cameras on the helmet'

 

but anyways, i notice a screen in this picture of the rangefinder and my questions are, is it possible to have a camera connecting to the said screen on the rangefinder and use it as an actual range finder but also has thermal and night vision capabilities? i've seen one of y'all's R.C rangefinder (forgot whom it was) but if i may branch out from that. what im thinking is tgo have the rangefinder turn on when its fully deployed.
this world is full of dreamers and doers. although i am both but more of a dreamer than a doer but i can do the smithing part, thats what i can do. my final question is, is it doable?
if y'all want to use my ideas, go ahead, by all means. use them. My ideas are for those who need spunk or a challenge but go ahead. id honestly would love to see one of y'all use my idea but all i ask is to credit me.

Can't see your picture but the smallest screens that can do video I've seen are around 1.5-2" wide. Although, if you can salvage an old camcorder, you might be able to use something in there.

Now for cameras, you can get tiny cameras that work with a raspberry pi zero, which will keep the bulkiness down. And good news, there's a "night vision" version of the camera as well. I couldn't find a thermal one.

Hope this helps.
