While I think the health benefits of a standing desk are often overstated, my daily routine currently consists entirely of sitting down (work, car, home) save for the occasional 40 minute run, so standing for at least part of my day couldn’t hurt. I’ve toyed with the idea of using a standing desk for a while now, today I finally took the plunge. Using this great guide to I made myself a standing desk unit for £12!
The only ‘toy’ quad I found of an acceptable size (there are lots of toy quads which are far too small for my purposes) was the X-30 quadcopter from Ebuyer.
OK so this isn’t strictly a new idea but I couldn’t help giving it a go. I designed and printed a custom enclosure for a cheap egg timer. The timer sits between a tripod and my mobius camera and pans the camera while it records in time-lapse mode. This was my first real attempt at a time-lapse video and I couldn’t be happier with the result. An unexpected benefit of using the Mobius camera in picture mode was that the resulting video is actually above HD resolution (1440p to be exact)!
As I’m currently on the huge waiting list to get a raspberry pi, this case has been designed around the official dimensions for the device. Until I get my hands on one of the units I’ll be unable to guarantee it will actually fit.
