Using conductive paint, I painted 2 thin strips along the coping of the ledge. One strip connected to ground and the other to a DSLR’s shutter with copper tape. The tape runs from the end of the 2 paint stripes and into a cord I’ve spliced and soldered into my DSLR. Once the truck of the skateboard makes contact with the ledge, a photo is snapped and sent straight to ConductiveSkatePhotography.com. On the responsive site, users can learn how the project works, view photos in real time as they are snapped, they can actually search and navigate to other skate parks that have these devices built in and see photos from that park.
This site is live as we speak, and scalable (for the most part) to any device. Still in BETA, but it’s been working awesome.
