Moving the camera

As a rule, I advise folks not to move the camera. Repeatability, vibration and cable flex are all concerns, but I will accept that sometimes it’s the only way to get a job done. But what if the camera could just look around, like a human eye?

Apart from being a little creepy, that’s the subject of some work going on at Georgia Tech. For more information take a look at “Biologically inspired piezo actuator lets robotic camera mimic human eye movement,” posted on the Laser Focus World website August 2nd, 2012.
