Playing with the idea of the third eye, which is also known to be mystical or an invisible eye; we started to think about what this means and how it relates to cameras. That being said, we created a helmet with an attached DSLR camera. The camera is triggered wirelessly through a microcontroller and PIR motion sensors. Every time the PIR motion sensor detects motion, it snap a photograph. The pictures taken by our "helmet" are mostly out of focus and blurry. We placed the camera in a field of vision that is uncommon (backwards). This adds another perspective to this notion we are trying to convey, much like an extended vision.
Man Trying on Helmet at Maker Faire
I put on the helmet and walked around Maker Faire. As I was walking, the camera statered going crazy with the amount of motion it detected. It started snapping photo after photo. These are just a few of the most interesting photos it took. None of the photos are in focus, but the photos are still interesting and captivating to look at.
