Need a Christmas present for someone with reduced vision, or want to build a Raspberry Pi video magnifier over the holidays?
I’ve just done that with a Pi camera, and shared the description on my blog: http://www.fhack.org/2018/12/19/raspber ... fier-2018/
Such a low vision reader can help e.g. elderly people with macular degeneration to get rid of hovering a magnifying glass when reading.
It supports switching between different levels of magnification with a single push button, or full control including colour inversion for white on black reading.
My post describes 2 different setups, but the fun part is probably to make up your own.
I’d be happy if this helps anyone, so please give feedback, notify me of stuff I missed, as well as your results and ideas.
