iDevice Steady-cam Project

07 October

In this project, you will see how you can create a steady-cam using your spare bricks, your TinkerBrick™ Case and a counterweight. “What’s a steady-cam?”, you ask. It’s an ingenious device that uses a gimbal, an arm and a counter-weight to steady a camera while the camera operator moves around. Of course, your iDevice has a great video camera. Why not use it to its fullest? The  steady-cam will allow you to move your camera, following the action, unlike a tripod which pretty much has to stay put.
