Alan Languirand has something called Project Lemon Battery set up at Maker Faire Detroit. It’s a solar-powered, 3G-connected webcam on a pole that takes pics every ten seconds and uploads them to a webpage.

Project Lemon Battery is part of a larger initiative Alan is involved in to sell “micro real estate” in Detroit to raise money to support good works in the city. Why “lemon battery?” “To be successful, we will need all the help we can get from anyone interested in realizing this goal, including the tinkerers with lemon batteries and potato alarm clocks in their science-fair past.”

There’s more info about the construction of the Lemon Battery camera rig on the project’s blog.

(A few more webcam captures from yesterday and today after the jump.)
