“How about some drone-style footage, indoors and without a drone? With a 3D printer and a few simple components, it might be easier than it sounds!
Like millions of people around the world, I spent the first month of the summer watching as many World Cup matches as I could blast at my face. (Allez les Bleus!) But unlike most, I spent a large part of that time watching the often dizzying Cable Camera feeds. Now we all know that overhead shots and UAV-style video are big right now - try to find a decent real estate listing that doesn’t have a drone shot of the property. However, people tend to get a little squirrely when there’s a drone buzzing overhead indoors. So I wanted to see if I could make a fast and simple Cable Cam unit - the hacker’s version of what I had been watching for a month - using a few parts and a 3D printer.”
