Automated Pinhole Camera Built with Lego Mindstorms


Pinhole cameras are usually very low-tech and dumbed-down in their operation, but how would one go about making it fancier like a digital camera? Basil Shikin decided to build his own custom pinhole camera using Lego Mindstorms, adding all sorts of awesome features to an ordinarily simple kind of camera. Features include automatic shutter speed calculation using a sensor, automatic film rewind, and the tracking of how much film remains.

If you’re interested in making your own, there’s a Google Code Project page that includes “making of” instructions and download links for the firmware.
