Inspired by the commercial PhotoCapture 360 system, Muris designed his own spinning-product camera controller that includes custom software to synchronize turntable rotation and photography through a single USB port. He wrote the program, built the turntable (using a stepper motor from an old scanner), and hacked an off-the shelf camera remote to provide control of the DSLR. [Thanks, Muris!]
