Transcript of Dorkbot SF Dec. 2011

Hello Dorkbot! My name is Matthew Goodman, I do strange things with electricity Myself and some coconspiritors
made this time-lapse video:

People who made this an awesome
project included folks from Langton
Labs, some HAM nerds, an epic DJ,
and many others! Truth be told . . . There is just no way what we did
to make this video should have
worked so well . . .
(The Real Title of this Talk) 9 Things Not to Do in
Time Lapse Photography Solar Panel Charge Controller Lead Acid batt. DSLR Camera Intervalometer EyeFi BRARA
HAM Station PTP

Job 1.) This is a fancy word for a timed camera switch. If this lost power even briefly, it would not restart. Just got lucky here . . . 2.) Tons of cameras support the
Canon Hack Development Kit.
Ours didn't. Use on that does . . . 3.) We used a "hiking" solar panel.
It was lashed over rocks using 22
gauge wire. Nuff said. After 2 months
of service it was operating at 80% of spec. LM317 Circuit! Dataz! 4.) Simple voltage supply circuit. . .
but soldered board free, and coated
in liquid tape. Really just got lucky
again on this one. . . 5.) EyeFi "Endless" memory Mode.
Tragic failure! Requires power to
by cycled to delete uploaded photos!
Totally undocumented. Booooooo! Bonus Hiking. . . 6.) How could data go wrong? 7.) Does your wireless get
slow when you have friends
over? How about 50,000 of
them? Another hike to add
WPA security to access point. . . 8.) Encapsulation:
-Vinyl raver backpack
-Medical Tape
-Liquid tape
-Extension Cord Sheating 9.) Aim. . .
Bring a compass you jerk . . . Thank You Dorkbot! Explicit Love Goes to:
