Just installed a new timelapse twvee set at All Asia Cafe in Cambridge MA.
Each day it makes a audio and video timelapse movie.
The machine is an old hp pc(~$140 from craigslist) with ubuntu 10.10 (free if you don’t count internet to download and cd to burn it on) on it. Webcam is a playstation 2 eyecam(~$40). I spent some money on lumber to build a box around it but mostly used scraps.
The machine also uses the youtube uploader stuff described in this post.
A twvee(twee-vee) set is sort of like a tv set except that it’s 2 directional. Maybe it should be a 2V set?
using motion now to capture frames. other incomplete notes here
a related experiment from a machine shop. some more theory too.
