Converting Old Film Reels to Digital With a Raspberry Pi

via Raspberry Pi Podcast

Joe Herman has taken an old film projector, a Raspberry Pi, a camera module and a stepper motor and created a machine that will help to convert 8mm and 16mm film reels into a digital format. He had to re-focus the camera module and he’s used a magnetic reed switch to detect when the frame has been moved on by the stepper motor to trigger the camera to take a photo of that particular frame. The actual processing of the photographic images was done on a more powerful Linux box. He’s written an article over on the IEEE Spectrum website, so head over there to read more.

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.
