This hack shows how to turn a Sony video camera into a motion detector to track animals in the wild and would then begin to record when it saw something moving. Although this feature is sometimes already built into video cameras, this maker decided to create her own using a simple relay circuit to control the power on the camera and the record button to trigger the filming. We also like the ghetto case that this thing resides in.
