Make an automated Arduino-powered digital photobooth

 As part of a fun enhancement to a memorable event, consider making a photobooth similar to the one documented by Instructables user "nichloe". They described how to tap into the remote control for a digital SLR camera, and then wait for movement in front of a passive infra-red motion detector. Once someone triggers the PIR, the Arduino controls the camera and take an four exposures over four seconds. By using a camera with a real-time video output, the guests can pose (in)appropriately for the photos...

This could be the framework for a fun photobooth for parties, weddings and so on, so check out the project page for more information. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

If you've heard about this "Arduino thing" - but not sure how to start - then the best way to learn is with our Experimenter's Kit for Arduino:

The package includes a wide variety of parts, sensors and modules including: a servo motor, lights, buttons, switches, sound, sensors, breadboard, wires and more. Furthermore a Freetronics Eleven Arduino-compatible board is included to make this an extensive hobby experimenter, inventor and starter kit. However we don't leave you alone to figure it all out, included is a great project and instruction booklet, plus access to a supporting web page and software examples. In other words - this is everything you need to get started for a fun range of electronics and Arduino related projects! 

So to get started or for more information and to order, check out the product page.
