Rectangles are boring! Make spherical images with this arduino-powered JPEG camera and motor apparatus. We use 2 Servo motors rotating along perpendicular axis to make a spherical camera. The camera takes a picture and then rotates to a new position. We then patch all the pics together into a spherical montage.
The camera can be powered by battery or USB. In keeping with our desire to make transparent devices we include a laser-cut plexi glass case for this camera (by the way, it is the same case used in our time-lapse camera project.) We are using the TTL Serial JPEG Camera with NTSC Video from adafruit, (they also have a weatherproof version).
