Scanner-cam from earlier in more detail

The scanner-cam we posted on Tuesday was pretty impressive, but it was far from clear just what was going on behind the lens, despite a video of the contraption in action. Well, the creator has posted some extra info and pictures of how it’s put together, so if this unorthodox imaging device piqued your curiosity, here’s a little more of it to check out.

Here’s what he has to say in his explanatory blog entry:

i’m not a professional. just for fun. please understand.

i think the Most important thing for making this camera is a brave of to disassemble a unknown new $100 scanner :)

Sounds good to me. I may look up a few of my craftier friends and see what we can do about putting together something like this with one of the scanners moldering in my my parents’ basement.
