Working CAMBOT
« on: July 11, 2014, 10:29:30 PM »
I will post some pics of the build when I am home, but here are the parts and how I did it;

I will post a build thread but these are the parts and sources that I used:


Plastic tumbler, Amazon, Target, etc.

Camera, I used a wireless backup camera set.

Red LED indicator, Boating store, car parts store, etc.

Ridge striping; I used a foam/rubber adhesive backed weatherstripping; hardware store

Assembly is real simple;

Trim the lip off the globe opening
Cut the bottom off the cup
Paint the cup and install the camera on the backside of a disk cut to fit inside the tumbler (I used aluminum)
Apply mirrored tint over the disk so it looks like CAMBOT's lense
Mount the camera battery in the back of the cup and wire up a switch so that the LED and camera are powered up (you can mount the switch on the back of CAMBOT)
Install the LED and push the cup into place securing it with 3 setscrews (I used sheet metal screws, they can be tiny)
Run a stripe of weatherstrip above and below the LED all the way around the globe
I put an eyelet in the top to hang him from a string

The monitor can be powered by a 12v adapter or battery and set up where you like. Mine is on top of a pinball machine near CAMBOT
