An animation inside a water drop by Physalia

2000 pictures compose this piece- that is, 2000 perfect different water drops into which we mapped an animation. Droplets that behave and look strangely similar at the stage of less entropy, and become more disorderly as they splash. The final result of the piece you have seen has absolutely no CGI, and was shot in stopmotion so as to be able to project inside the waterdrop the logo formation, previously an ...

MultiMovEDIA – Description of my Project

The title “MultiMovEDIA” does not mean much – if anything – at first sight. However, looking at more carefully, we can see it is a composition of two words: “Multimedia”, referring to the information content and the channels it uses (text, image, sound), and “Move”, meaning movement. This project incorporates movement and dynamics into the world of multimedia, in a unique way, where moving one’s arm or just ...

DIY Microscope

This Project Is A Part Of The Afrimakers Event http://www.afrimakers.org/ Introduction We used a simple cheap webcam to make a microscope. In short, a small hack to the optics of a standard webcam with an adjustable focus-lens, allows to create video data, with a magnification of around 100 to 400x (depending on the model) at a working distance of a few mm. The highest magnifications can be achieved by inve ...

Thermal Camera: Arduino UNO + MLX90614 IR Thermometer

I  did the following steps: 1) Hardware: Connect the MLX90614 (refer to the datasheet) as follows: Pin 1 on MLX (SCL) connect to ANALOG pin 5 on Arduino Pin 2 on MLX (SDA) connect to ANALOG pin 4 on Arduino Pin 3 on MLX (VDD) connect to 3.3V on Arduino Pin 4 on MLX (VSS) connect to GROUND on ArduinoNow use "pull ups" on the SCL and SDA lines by connecting a 4.7K ohm resistor from the Pin 3 VDD line to the S ...

Arduino Project: Intervalometer for Fuji cameras

This post is about an arduino-based intervalometer I built for my camera, a Fuji S9600 dSLR. I decided to go for a very simple interface: a rotary switch in the middle of a plastic box which would allow me to select 12 pre-defined intervals. I went for a switch and not a potentiometer because I wanted to be certain about the option I select: the reassuring “click” of the rotary switch does exactly that! Als ...

TV-B-Gone Kit using arduino

Tired of all those LCD TVs everywhere? Want a break from advertisements while you're trying to eat? Want to zap screens from across the street? The TV-B-Gone kit is what you need! This ultra-high-power version of the popular TV-B-Gone is fun to make and even more fun to use. Built in co-operation with Mitch Altman (the inventor of the TV-B-Gone - http://www.tvbgone.com) this kit is a great way to build some ...

High-speed Photography with Arduino and CHDK using arduino

This project uses an Arduino microcontroller and a laser break-beam trigger to fire via USB remote a Canon camera modified with CHDK (Canon Hack Development Kit) firmware. Immediate influences are the high-speed flash photography triggered by sound or light project by Glacial Wanderer and the Laser Triggered High-Speed Photography instructable by Saskview. The first uses a laser break-beam and an Arduino to ...

CMUcam3: Working Module But Not Working CMUcam3-Arduino System

After over spending nearly 20 hours extra on fixing peggy2 board I mentioned in the previous post, there is only a few hours left for me to work on CMUcam3-Arduino system and its facial-recognition driven motor system. The basic programming architecture is shown below. When in “interaction mode”, CMUcam3 camera dictates the only input information of the surface when there are people around. Based on differe ...

Camera controller

Intervawhat? An intervalometer is a camera controller that signals the camera to take a picture after some set interval. This is really useful for creating timelapse videos. For a long time, I used my TI-89 calculator to create timelapse videos with my Canon digital Rebel XTi. It worked quite well, and the calculator in/out port just happened to be the same as the Canon remote shutter port, so there wasn't ...

Flash trigger using arduino

his project is mainly based in this one from Glaciar Wanderer. I just liked his idea and worked it on my own. (I think this guy and me would be friends, as the projects he has in his photography category are things I’ve been wanting to do since I got my Arduino. I will not be using a microphone as sensor, at least not right now. On the other side I am using a transistor to control the laser instead of using ...

A Makers Wedding – Photo booth usnig arduino

This Instructable is about: building an automated photo booth. The total build cost was around $150 as I re-used a lot of the components and materials I already had in my garage - in addition to what I could salvage from scrap yards. Why? - I decided to build my own photo booth after trying to rent one from local photography studios. The going rate for a rented photo booth is around $600 in addition to the ...
