optically guided follow cam

Make It Wearable Finalists | Meet Team Nixie (1 min 52 sec)

Couldn't believe how many people actually thought it was real. It's another example of how millennials believe absolutely everything they're told, while we would always ask questions, 20 years ago. They're just as believing on the economy & politicians. Not sure why this is. Maybe they know a lot less about physics than us.

Besides the industrial design which obviously won't work & has nothing to do with the stated purpose of making it small, if it was something which actually flew, wind resistance still wouldn't be there. It still requires a pink marker or an image processing ASIC. It's actually smaller than the Edison board he's trying to base it on.

The problem with prototyping an optically guided follow cam, using a laptop for image processing, was the antenna on the transmitter always falling off. Those Chinese never gave any thought to how fragile a postage stamp was for soldering an antenna to. Once it breaks off, the trace is gone.

It really needs a breakout board with the voltage regulators & a surface mount antenna, which is not the optimum weight.
