Using little more than some PCBs from Sparkfun, two micro servos, some right angle headers and screws left over from a junked Gameboy, Jose Torres from RampageRobotics built this pan-tilt robot camera rig (with the help of a Dremel and a soldering iron). The CMOS camera module is from Electronics123.com. Clever use of the bent header pins to create a right-angle mount for the tilt-servo PCB.
