BeetleCam Wildlife PhotoBot

Very neat. I once did this with an old VHS-C camcorder and was fascinated by the results. Watching video shot with a wide angle lens that is only six inches off the ground is actually quite captivating.

“We booked a trip to Tanzania and set about designing, building and testing BeetleCam. The first step was to get up to speed on the necessary robotics and electronics that would be required to build such a vehicle from scratch. Having conducted some research, we sourced components from around the world. Construction then began in earnest with sawing, soldering, sewing and super gluing taking place around the clock in Will’s garage.”
