As you can see it is very easy to understand why this digital camera has gotten the nickname Frankencamera. Nevertheless it is a very impressive project at Stanford University aiming to create an Open Source camera with clever software features. Check it out.
One of the projects that we have at Geekubator is the Open Source Photo Studio (OSPS). It aims to design and develop a hardware for image documentation of objects through hardware, photography and smart software. We have spent ages brainstorming, tinkering and defining concepts.
Now we are very proud to have started the hardware design in Kompas-3D CAD where we create all the hardware components. The whole design and matching software will be released under an open source license for everyone to download.
The screenshot above shows a very simple but crucial component of the OSPS. It is the spin table and measures 500 mm in diameter and 22 mm in thickness. The five holes are for holding small magnets for object positioning purposes.
