Hello Linux Geeksters. The Raspberry Pi developers are launching the Pi NoIR, a camera that has the infrared filters removed, in order to sense IR signals and low-light movement. With this camera, the users may take amazing photographies in low-light conditions or at night.
At first, the Sunny developers refused to create cameras with no IR for the Raspberry Pi board, but they got convinced afterall. The Pi NoIR special cameras should be released at the beginning of November, for about $25, the same price as a normal camera module.
For those who don’t know, Raspberry Pi is a mini-computer with the size of a credit-card, having a 700 Mhz ARM CPU, 512 MB of RAM, USB ports, Ethernet port, HDMI port for pluging TVs or monitors, and supports SD cards up to 32 GB. Used with a keyboard, mouse and plugged in at a TV, this small ARM device turns into a modest computer, good for daily basic tasks.
