About

A few weeks ago I attached an iPhone to a power drill and spun it around real fast. It worked, but wobbled a bit too much because it wasn't balanced.

I have decided to build a fancy art machine to spin a GoPro Hero Session very fast because it is cube-shaped and won't wobble as much.

The reason I would like to build this is because lately I have been interested in creating machines that can be used as tools for creating more artwork.

For example, here is a self-spinning kaleidoscopic video maker that I have previously built for taking cell phone videos.

This device was machined from aluminum and completely assembled in about 3 days time. In short, I know how to build things and I have a proven track record to show that I am efficient at it.

I envision this video camera spinner to be even fancier than the kaleidoscope rig (pictured above). I have already built a working prototype for this machine using laser cut acrylic. I ultimately want to make it out of water jet aluminum, and build it into a fancy blue and white carry enclosure.

I'm seeking money to cover the cost of the raw materials, machine time, and the control circuitry. 

Complete how-to instructions, source code, and fabrication files will be posted online for free on Instructables

Here is roughly what the Made In Euphoria unicorn sticker reward will look like:

Risks and challenges

I don't expect too many risks or challenges since I have already created a working prototype.

There is always the chance of unforeseen problems or delays in sourcing parts or fabricating the device.

The additional circuitry and code might also take a little bit of figuring out, but I don't currently expect it to slow me down too much.
