ESP32 CAM - Prusa Connect - Camera for print progress

Hi All,

Now that Prusa Connect is here, it is time to fully take advantage of the ecosystem and build a camera monitoring system for you.

I'm planning to start a Kickstarter/crowd supply project for a plug-and-play solution to have a camera for your Prusa Mini or Prusa MK4

This project for me started in 2021 when I already made my first boards ( https://hackaday.io/project/182811-esp32-cam-prusa-mini), this worked great for me, but was difficult to setup, now with prusa connect it is time to share it more broadly, and make it easy for you to integrate. 

This post marks the start of an adventure, the goal is to gather ideas and feedback from you, and the community. So that when we launch a campaign it is a product you would actually like to use!

Please let me know if you like this project,  and if you have suggestions 

Later I will follow up with more details

I also would like to know more. Your 2021 board was clever positioned behind the mini+ lcd. Makes me wonder how you are planning on doing this for the MK4. Keep on the good work 💪
