MCU controllable camera mount

head

[psymansays] needed a panning head for his robotics projects. Already being familiar with the NXP LPC2148 from work, so he wanted to use that to control it.  he built his own carousel out of old CDs. The axle of the carousel is a potentiometer. This is what he’s using to determine position. The gear motor was actually cobbled together with bits from a windup toy and an old motor. This may be a bit bulky, but it seems not only functional, but fairly versatile.

  1. Truly a programmer exemplifying the concept of “reusing and recycling” with this build. Great job! (The green plastic beads were a nice touch, as well ;} )
