Can I live feed from a camera to the tiny screen?

Can I live feed from a camera to the tiny screen?

Sorry if i put this in the wrong place.

I am working on a helmet monted screen project and was wondering if there is a way to have a direct camera feed to the screen?

I dont have the product yet. The tiny circuits is the perfect size i need for this project, i just need to know about the live feed before i buy.

I would like to know this as well.  I have a project that involves this same setup.

Thanks for bumping this, @Chasesound! To put it simply - yes, it is possible. What you will most likely have to do is purchase one of our proto boards and solder/attach your own camera module. Note that the TinyScreens are 96x64 (3:2) when you're looking for a module - you'll want to find something close to that ratio and resolution to make compression easier. Memory management (e.g, the screen buffer) on limited RAM is also another challenge, but not impossible. You'll likely consume considerably more power than your standard Arduino project - keep this in mind when evaluating power sources.

TL;DR - It's entirely possible, but comes with its own set of challenges. Good luck building!
