Build a High-Speed Laser-Triggered Photography Rig to Capture Split Second Exposures

19/02/2010

Interesting photo rig from belgian photographer fotoopa (which, we hear, as “foto opa,” means something like “photo grandpa” in Dutch).

Those tho arms have infrared lasers which act as a trigger for the shutter. With such a rig wou can’t miss the right moment to tak ethe picture. You can visit this link below to see his technical schematics and diagrams, along with photos of him constructing the rig. If you have no intention of building such an elaborate rig, we’d still suggest taking a peek at his galleries.

 You can view his insect gallery here and his water droplets gallery here.

Arduino All Stars – The Coplete IR Library for Arduino

11/02/2010

Some time ago Ken Shirriff posted on his blog a nice e useful library, lately moved to GitHub: The InfraRed Arduino Library.
Since then you can decode Sony, Nec, RC5 and RC6 , and even raw codes, using them to store unusual commands from unusual protocols. (The code can be downloaded from IRhashcode.pde. The sample application prints the “real” decoded value and the hash value. The “real” value will only work for supported protocols (Sony, RC5, RC6, NEC), but the hash value should work for almost any remote control.)

This is, by farm the most interesting Arduino library around.
Build your own commander!
TIP: remember to follow TV-B-Gone instructions for powering the IR led)
