If you do sports it typically requires another person to take the photos of you. Having the evening off in in Haifa Keith, Antonio and me went climbing at http://www.shafan-hasela.com/. It was not easy to get there – we used the typical way – first: take a bus to a random place (not intentially) – second: realize that the bus went to a place you did not want to go – third: take the taxi to where you wanted to go.
Being three people it was very easy to takes pictures while climbing – and I as I am climbing a class below Antonio and Keith I had a lot of time to take the pictures 😉
Being computer scientist you always think about cool, challenging, and exciting projects. So we wondered if we could build an autonomous flying object that contains a camera that follows you (in a defined distance) and takes exciting photos. We have an idea how this could be done – let me know if you would be interested in the project (e.g. bachelor/master)- may be even done in a collaboration with Lancaster.
One thought to “Taking pictures during sports – ideas for an appliance”
I think a flying camera would be very useful to film-makers, building and bridge inspectors, architects, and so on.
I think I read somewhere that the U.S. military was researching a similar concept. I guess if something like this was developed for the military, it wouldn't be for artistic or leisure pursuits.
