In the previous post I feature photos of building the enclosure and all the work on the exterior, To prevent the gallery from becoming to big I decided to create a new post where I will add the photos related to the interior.
Slowly parts are arriving in my mailbox. I decided to throw a quick prototype together and see if it all works. Already I discovered that I have to make some minor hardware changes but so far it is not too bad. Here is a little demo. Credits for the software go to Christopher Evans. You can find the link to his website in a previous post. I only did some minor tweaks to make it suit my purpose.
My third race across the cook strait sailing on Sirrah. It sure was windy and the weather wasn't that nice but it was probably the most fun race yet. 17th place out of 34 boats. Photos made by: @tamzin.nz
First I want to point out i made some slight adjustments to the steps for enabling the build in flash. I wrote the steps a few hours after actually doing them and some turned out to be slightly incorrect. They should be correct now.
In this blog post we will be downloading the photo booth software and making some simple changes to enable the flash.
Before we can try it out we need to install Pytumblr.
