Self balancing scooters (hoverboards) can make an image stabilizer camera rig that can be used to capture smooth, low angle shoots.
Mounting a small camera to the body of the scooter can be challenging because the center part of the board twists while in operation.
With a 3D printed adapter, we can add a clamp for a camera mount to the middle of the board without obstructing riding or interfering with the position of the camera mount.
Below is a list of parts used in this project.
- Camera shoe mount
- Swivel-Head Pan Tilt (PTZ) Shoe Mount Adapter
- GoPro Camera Tripod Moint
Here's a list of tools used to get this project completed. If you don't have access to a 3D printer, you can send your parts to 3DHubs.com to have them printed and shipped to you.
- 3D Printer
- PLA or ABS Filament (ABS, PLA, etc.)
