DIY PTZ Dome Camera - All. In this instructable I'll show you how to mod a security camera into a panning camera by using accessories found on the web; you can use this same instructions to make pan/tilt camera by just upgrading the electric bracket; here is the list of things you'll need and links from where I bough mine (for about $50 depending on what deals you can get, the links provided are just for convenience and might not the cheapest price to be found on eBay so do your own research) Tools: Soldering iron, 0.5 mm solder and soldering paste (electrical)Drill (cordless is easier to work with)Drill bits 3/16 & 1/4Dremel with cut off wheel and sanding drum attachmentsSilicone (outdoor use/weather resistant)Quick setting epoxy (Harbor Freight)Small and medium Philips screw driversHeat gun and 3.5 mm heat shrink tubing (got mine from Harbor Freight for $9 and works great)Hot glue gun Parts:
Projector-Camera Calibration / 3D Scanning Software. 3D Imaging, Modeling, Processing, Visualization and Transmission Daniel Moreno and Gabriel Taubin Abstract Structured-light systems are simple and effective tools to acquire 3D models.
Built with off-the-shelf components, a data projector and a camera, they are easy to deploy and compare in precision with expensive laser scanners. But such a high precision is only possible if camera and projector are both accurately calibrated. Sample system setup A typical setup of a structured light system used for 3D scanning. Calibration Software As result of this work, and to make structured-light 3D more widely available, a Camera-Projector Calibration software was developed and is available to download and try. Local homographies A novel contribution of this work is the concept of local homographies to individually translate each checkerboard corner from the camera plane to the projector plane.

Lupin, Alexey Epishev, Mikael Wehner, Masato Tsutsui, Mr. Small, Programmable, Wearable and Cheap - Enjoying the ATTiny85 - Tutorial by @fctry2. Ok, so let’s talk cheap and tiny: programmable computers needn’t be large precious things, they can be tiny things that we can leave behind, let go, abandon to the cruel world.
I’m not advocating being overly irresponsible or wasteful, but I do think that the world and the things that you can make in it gets a lot more interesting if you don’t have to worry inordinately about protecting your project. An Arduino or Raspberry Pi, wonderful tools that they are, are not cheap, somewhat demanding of battery life, and as such we usually need to protect our controller and modify our project to fit their form factors. As a teacher, I can’t count the number of times I’ve seen an Arduino used to listen for a button press or wait for a door to open. Wouldn’t it would be nice to have something small, programmable, cheap, and power efficient that could do *some* of what an Arduino can do and had the same easy tools to use with it?
Well there is: the ATTiny85! How to use openFrameworks on the RaspberryPi - Tutorial by @jvcleave @nanikawa / @resonate_io. Raspberry Pi is a very exciting, low-cost computer aimed at the educational market.
With a starting price around $25, a very small form factor and exceptional multimedia capabilities, it is very attractive for creative computing projects. openFrameworks already runs on a multitude of platforms and the Raspberry Pi is one of the latest of these. In March 2013 we held a workshop at the Resonate 2013 festival where participants had a look at how to set up a comfortable work environment, the particulars of running openFrameworks on the Raspberry Pi and went through some examples that play to the strengths of the Raspberry Pi.
The purpose of this guide is to gain familiarity with the Raspberry Pi, a bit of Linux and a head start in programming for one of the most exciting computing platforms out there. We won’t be delving too deeply into any one topic as some of these topics (Linux, shaders) are huge, but rather we aim to provide a starting point and a few example apps that can be built upon. How to create interactive loops using lenticular animation and @gifpop / @golan @CarnegieMellon. Golan Levin, director of The Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry (Carnegie Mellon University), has 27 students in his Interactive Art & Computational Design class.
They range from sophomores (2nd-year undergraduates) to doctoral students. They come from 10 different department (Art, Architecture, Design, Robotics, Computer Science) and they use a huge variety of programming techniques. The purpose of this assignment was to sharpen the students’ craft as a creative technologist and provide a good/basic introduction to programming.
For their 3rd week of class Golan developed an assignment titled “A Looping, Computationally-Generated Animated GIF, and a Lenticular GIFPop! Print”. Create computational animations using an arts-engineering toolkit;Prepare animated imagery for publication in GIF and lenticular formats;Conceive and appraise graphical concepts within the constraints of the GIF format.Compare the qualities of physical and virtual media SKETCH FIRST!
