Timelapsebox

From Eth0Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The idea is to have a self contained box that anyone can build, and change that can be setup on a field / in a building before anyone else comes in. Starts taking pictures trough any and all connected webcams/camera's and stores a timelapse on its storage media.

This box would stay online during the entire event and easily and without any extra steering needed create a nice timelapse video for every connected camera.
