Photograph wildlife thanks to an Arduino board

New gadgets can be combined to solve traditional problems. The latest gadget that can fix a common problem is the 360 ​​camera. These cameras allow you to record and create 360º videos or photos. This gadget can be used to record wild animals or the odd intruder.

The idea is connect a plate Arduino UNO to the camera next to a motion sensor, in such a way that when the motion sensor detects something, the Arduino board orders the camera to start recording and taking images.

One of the most popular projects in this field is the solution proposed by Andrew Quitmeyer, a hacker and hiking lover who decided to capture the wildlife that once passed through natural places.

A 360 camera with Arduino UNO it can be a great solution to capture wild animal pictures and videos

This solution that some have already used together with Raspberry Pi for home projects with the Pi Cam, is useful to save battery and not have to be in front of the camera waiting for an animal or intruder to appear and record it. In addition, in the case of wanting to record wild animals, it goes without saying that this project allows us to record or take any image without being in danger or conditioning the animal's behavior.

Although to build such a gadget you do not need advanced knowledge of electronics, in this link we can find the detailed construction guide as well as the material costs, costs that depend on the components and materials that we have but that can easily exceed 100 euros if we take into account the cost of this type of camera. In any case, the gadget works so we can capture images of animals in their natural habitat, something that is worth more for animal lovers Do not you think?
