Art Drops: capturing what the human eye can’t see

Art Drop is a project by italian photographer Gianluca Sambo and recently awarded with first prize from PX3, “Prix de la Photographie de Paris”. He’s been experimenting for some time a DIY technique based on Arduino to capture amazing shapes of liquid drops mixed with dyes and other ingredients to vary the density, and therefore, the shape of the liquid in motion. Arduino allows him to synchronise the camera with the flash and the water pump, creating a series of pictures full of colours and unforeseen shapes.

Take a look at the video below to see how it works:

DIY Doorbell Video Security System

Ever wonder who comes to your door during the day while you’re gone?  Here’s a simple DIY project to answer that question.  Every time someone rings your doorbell, you’ll receive a text message containing a photo of the person.  The system can also be setup to automatically take photos based upon motion detection instead of a doorbell press.

When someone rings the doorbell, the Arduino instructs a camera to take a picture. It then also sends an email to your smart phone notifying you that someone is at the door.  If you’re nterested in building your own, check out the detailed instructions.
