Snap a Pic of the Secret Lives of Animals
Naturebytes' DIY Wildlife Cam can make anyone a wildlife photographer, especially your little ones
Taking photos of animals in the wild is not an easy task. It may mean lots of expensive equipment, training, and worst of all, hours and hours of waiting around for the perfect shot. One way to get around that is the “camera trap” or “trail camera” that uses sensors to trigger an automatic camera when an animal comes near. The Naturebytes Wildlife Cam Kit lets you build your own camera trap, learning about wildlife and technology at the same time.
At the heart of the Naturebytes kit lies the Raspberry Pi computer and camera module. The Pi is easily programmable and customizable, with upgrades such as solar charging and night vision available.
