Raspberry Pi Bullet Time Recorder


If you have a box full of Raspberry Pi’s kicking around you can connect a camera to all of them, hook together on a network and have fun with your new Raspberry Pi Bullet Time Recorder. Of course if you would like to freeze time like in the movies you will need to purchase 3 or 4 dozen DSLR cameras, better get your checkbook ready!
