Create some epic sweeping shots with this Pi powered linecam! From Maxiiliano Palay on Hackaday.io, fun build that incorporates a lot of different elements:
Cablecam, also known as “linecam” is a device that moves along a string. It is used in a variety of industries from surveillance to cinema.
The system is based on Nvidia’s Jetson Nano (as a computer for the base station) and Raspberry Pi on board of the cablecam. It also uses a couple of Arduino Nanos for easy support of the hardware interfaces.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
