Time Lapse Light Sculptures


[Jared] sent us a feature he posted involving time-lapse photography and an LED. Using a custom built aparatus an LED is moved on two axis’ during a long exposure of around thirty seconds. The frame is wood and PVC with two gearhead motors powered by AA batteries to provide the locomotion. The LED is powered by a 3v button cell and automatically transitions through different colors.

  1. This one is pretty simple but can easily expand into a more powerful hack. He could (for example) create a computer simulator that given the motors speed, create a pre-visualization of what the long exposure image would be.
