Cool Kickstarter: Mindsensors Pi-Pan


There’s a very cool new project on Kickstarter: the Pi-Pan, a pan-tilt rig for the Raspberry Pi Camera.  This project has been created by Mindsensors, so you can expect a good product.  As you can see from the screenshot, they’ve more than reached their funding goal and they still have quite a number of days left.

The Pi-Pan consists of a shield that fits on the RasPi, two servos and some bits and pieces to help mount the camera.  They also have a very nice case that will allow you to mount these servos easily on top of your Pi.  If you’re curious, go check out the project page here: [LINK].
