I really would like to build one of these and use it for dslr video, panoramas, timelapse, etc. Also with the ability to actually program the "base" you could potentially create some very nice dslr timelapse videos using this and a diy slider system. You might even be able to tie into the system for automating the slider motion as well! The only drawback I see is that the left to right automation of this seems to be a bit "jerky" and not very smooth, unlike when they do the up and down motion, but that might be just a gear issue that could be solved fairly easy I think.
Take a look at the video below and let your mind just think of the possibilities!
Hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for stopping by!
