Panbo editor, publisher & chief bottlewasher from 4/2005 until 8/2018, and now pleased to have Ben Stein as a very able publisher, webmaster, and editing colleague. Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Lovely contraption, that. When I started the Microship project (14 years ago… eek!), one of the first projects was the video turret. What it lacked in computational image-stitching motion-detecting horsepower compared to the above, it made up in robotic geekery. Construction details and software are over here for the adventurous. Of course, now that it’s cheaper to scatter cheap cameras around and switch among them, I might use the turret on my new boat to steer a small Radiolabs RL1000 WiFi antenna, which just fits.
