Sentry Droid
« on: Feb 20, 2017, 01:52 PM »
Okay so I have an interesting idea to run by people. The idea is a Sentry Droid, about the size of a fist. It would be shoulder mounted and in best case scenario, it would hardly be seen in photos.

Now the droid would be hollowed out and fitted with my Go-pro.
There is an app to connect Ipods dating back to the 4th gen (so i don't have to spend money on a current gen).
I could attach the ipod to a gaunt, thus being able to "see" through my sentry droid, and possibly to record my time at cons.
I think it would be a good atheistic, and interesting concept to try and pull off.

Not sure if anyone has done this before, or maybe this idea is too dumb for people to think of! Hahaha. Just putting some thoughts out there that float through my head. Thanks!

Nice! I recall one of our Vok'Chi folks was sporting a GoPro and mount for some of the time at Celebration and I had considered doing something similar myself, but didn't want to spoil my kit with something that isn't Swarzy. But I like the idea...a lot!

Dammit...that's likely something else I want to build myself now...

Would love to see your progress if you decide to go(pro) for it.

That line kills me. Haha.

I plan to work on it as I make my kit. I could probably get it done in a couple months.
I will return to this post when I do to let you know. :)

Sounds like your idea would fit well.  I love the idea of streaming it to a screen on your gauntlet.

If you want something small, only for recording, Mobius cameras (and others used in airsoft) are small and decent.

Also worth looking up the "Xiaomi Yi". I have one and took it on holiday to Croatia with me. Was brilliant, could also connect via wifi to a phone app to see what the camera saw.

May be a cheaper alternative to a GoPro with rival quality to take apart for an experiment.

I already own the Go Pro, and hardly use it, so I wouldn't mind if I had to mod it at all, but thank you nonetheless!
