Make your own pinhole pocket watch pinhole camera via instructables
I’m not exactly sure what stream of thoughts lead to this idea. I had been looking for an interesting way to use optics or lenses on a ring or necklace. Days of searching early thoughts lead me to other ideas and still other ideas. I tested various lenses I had lying around trying to make something cool happen until I gave up and decided to create something that works with natural optics. A pinhole camera requires only an aperture (pinhole) and light. I found an old cheap pocket watch I had lying around and set to work trying to make everything fit within.
Materials for Camera
toilet paper roll
quick dry tacky glue
black acrylic paint
sheet of paper
aluminum (a soda can will do)
small piece of small link chain
small piece of firm foam
small flat head screwdriver (or other tool to open the back of the pocket watch)
fine tip marker
circle punch (slightly smaller than the inside of your watch)
dremel with cutting bit (This tool is optional if you can find another option for step 7. So, if you don’t have a dremel, you’ll just need to be creative.)
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
