Props Halo Sniper Rifle Scope

So for the longest amount of time ive had a raspberry pi 3b laying around with nothing for it to do, but recently ive purchased a halo sniper rifle kit and ive been trying to replicate the in game sniper rifle but ive had little to no success.

So i thought that id ask if anyone has any hints or tips i could try since im trying to make it so it has a overlay of the zoom in hud and so it can record audio and video.

Any help would be appreciated
Maybe you can find it, but there was a an amazing video on YouTube where someone pulled this off. I think it was in several parts, but he never really said how he did it I dont think. He did show the inside of it. That may give you some ideas...

I know its been a while but i got caught up in school and ive finally saved up enough money to buy a 3d printer and viacad to make the enclosure for the scope but this is all i have so far.

Its the screen lens and as soon as it prints i can take a silicone mold of it and cast it with clear resin.

Ive wanted to install something like this in my sniper scope for awhile and maybe when I build a second one I will do so. My method that I was thinking about is taking a point and shoot digital camera and popping the screen out and using that as the monitor, but keeping it connected to the rest of the body so the lens could zoom in. The only problem being that theres not really a good way to code a graphic onto the camera for the reticle, or if there is then I'm open to suggestion. But I might solve that with an etched piece of acrylic.

So far this looks amazing!! I'm really looking forward to seeing the end result!

What i had in mind was configuring a raspberry pi to run in opencv but the problem is there is such little information but ive been working on it so far and ive got it to display an image and live feed but not the imageover the live feed but in the end i plan to mount a infrared laser to give it a night vision effect however it might not be green but eh... itll work

Trust me. A glass bed upgrade is just godly.

Definitely worth the $15.

Had heaps of sticking issues with my prints, bought a glass bed, put some glue stick and everything stuck with ease. No lifts at the corner.

And the best part. I don't need to pry the print off the glass bed. The glue stick solidifies when it gets cold, and acts like a wax, so the 3d print just pops off like nothing even held it down.
