Hardware Hacking

Submission + - DIY Sound Activated High Speed Photography (

eldavojohn writes: Have you ever wanted to catch the perfect photo with your SLR camera but couldn't time the shot just right? Photography enthusiast Matt Richardson brings us an instructional video over at Make Magazine that shows how to use some very basic breadboarding and an Arduino Nano to do some high speed flash photography that is timed by sound instead of your finger hitting the button on the camera. He pops a balloon and smashes a wine glass to show some results. His code is available on Github and you can find more of this sly hardware hacker on his YouTube channel.
