So, what sort of fun camera applications have readers seen developed using the NXT? A long time ago, there was an innovative student who tried to use the RCX with a sensor-equiped birdfeeder to try to photograph birds as they arrived (this was before "cheap" digital cameras... I shudder to think of the film and developing cost). But with the NXT it seems the field has exploded! I've seen the NXT used to automate time-exposures (including active precise panning), and Jim has some neat ideas and applications as well (the camera-carrying robot from his "Mayan Adventure" book, to name one example). Here's yet another that I recently noticed, an individual that has used the NXT to make a mount for professional panoramic photography (at a fraction of the cost of the normal "professional" rigs):
Ian Wood's Panoramic Robot
This is a really nice idea (all of them!) - I'm thinking about a programmable multi-position cam-bot (she was always so nice on MST3K) for stop-motion or time-lapse photography (think about it... cam-bot could wander the house at just a few meters per day during a vacation, perhaps, showing the play of light through the windows over the course of days, etc.)
So, any fun ideas out there? Other photographic applications you've seen and want to bring to the forefront?
