Marvel fan re-creates the famous E.D.I.T.H. specs from Avengers and Spider-man using a Raspberry Pi Zero

Mike Darby, over at 314Reactor, has carried out an impressive make by re-creating the E.D.I.T.H. glasses from Spider-man Far From Home. If you haven’t seen Avengers: Endgame or Far From Home yet, stop reading and get thee to your nearest screen to check out these wonderful movies. I’ll leave a bit of a gap so that you don’t see anything you don’t want to!

E.D.I.T.H. (I’m not going to spoil the acronym!) is a set of glasses worn by Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame and which are eventually given to Spider-man (played by Tom Holland). They carry an artificial intelligence which allows the wearer to control all sorts of Stark Tech and also see an enhanced version of the real world.

Mike Darby has taken a Raspberry Pi Zero, an Adafruit Powerboost, a LiPo battery, a camera and some other bits and pieces and re-created the glasses. The software uses Python and various libraries to do the text-to-speech and information look-ups, including a very nice tie-in to knowledge-provider Wolfram Alpha.

Sure, the glasses a bit bulkier than he would like and, because it’s a single-core Zero, it’s a bit slower than is ideal, but the concept is terrific. Kudos, especially, for the use of necessary Blutack to hold the glasses on his nose! You can find out more about the project by viewing the video below (which is, possibly intentionally, very funny, especially at the beginning, unless that’s just my sense of humour!) and by reading his blog.
