Here’s a fun hack that shows you how to make a camera-robot that can autonomously take pics and videos, all while you control where it goes, plus the angles too. I think this might be a great project for those of you who take trips to the Amazon jungle to get footage of creatures and critters.
I’ve hacked a cheap camera and mounted on a pan / tilt neck assembly. Pictomatix MkII only has 64Mb of non upgradeable camera memory so unfortunately he can only take 25 hi-res pictures. I’ve now made him fully autonomous.
