“PiPan” Pan And Tilt Mechanism For Raspberry Pi Camera @RaspberryPi #piday #raspberrypi

Via Raspberry Pi Spy:

The OpenElectrons “PiPan” is a pan and tilt mechanism for the Raspberry Pi Camera Module. I’ve used the Pi camera in a few projects but this is the first bit of commercial Pi camera hardware I’ve had the chance to play with.

It consists of a kit which when assembled allows you to move your camera in both horizontal and vertical directions. To achieve this is uses two small servos and a control board which can be controlled using Python. It can pan 180 degrees (from left to right) and tilt 110 degrees (top to bottom) although I haven’t been able to test this yet.
