Over the years, many people have designed compatible hardware modules and software libraries that expand what the open- source Arduino ecosystem can do. Here, well show you how to plug together several ofthese common components to create a custom trail camera that sits and waits until it detects movement to take pictures: an Arduino Uno microcontroller, the RadioShack JPEG camera module a PIR motion sensor unit and a special Aurduino “shield” with an SD card reader. Ifyou look atthe specifications of ‘the camera module, you may notice ithas a built-in motion detector. So Advertorial why not use this instead ofthe PIR? The camera module detects motion by changes inthe image so that, for example, a branch moved by the wind would cause it to trigger, But the PIR sensor is temperature sensitive, meaning it wil only trigger if things are hotter (or cooler) than the surrounding environment, Humans, mast animals, ino mn ulead your and moving cars will trigger the PIR, tost Yonaabeg a card whereas a swaying branch and other windblown debris will not, The camera comes wth four reste, Connect he fle nd tothe camara module wth ed 105V, black o GND, brown of, and white to TXD Onthe PR sensor, connect a fomale/nal jumper wire o GND (bck), OUT (ue), and Vor (ed).

TIERTINE Dew Tofnd mote than 40 Tete esl round the word vist www.PPSDP.com WELCOME: WHEN WE STARTED MAKE MAGAZINE nine years ag, we wanted to show that any- body can rake things, and celebrate those ‘who do it well —the makers. That is also ‘what led us to organize the frst Maker Faire and invite makers to showease their work Maker Faire has become a glabal cal- ‘bration of making that invites everyone to bbecomme a maker. In 2013, there were 100 Maker Faire events, 44 of which were hosted bymuseums, Ubraries, and schools. While the two largest Fares are the ones we orga- nize in the Bay Area and New York City, with 125,000 and 75,000 participants, respec- tively, even more people are experiencing 3 local version of Maker Faire, Some 530,0 people attended a Maker Fairein 2013, The majority of events are stil inthe Unit- ced States, However, Maker Faire Rome, the first targe European event, hosted 35,000 people and was a big success. France had its first Maker Faire in the town of St. Malo on the Brittany coast. Germany alsohad its first Faire in Hannover last August. Taipei, Shenzhen, Tokyo, and Seoul produced second-year events, as did Santiago, Chile ‘Already, 2014 is off to 2 good start with Maker Faire Oslo in Norway having taken place in mid-January. I went to Oslo, where the organizers, Jon Haavie and Roger An tonsen, asked me to choose an Oslo Maker ‘ofthe Year: | balked at first. don't ke pick ing favorites, but then | saw it as another way to celebrate makers.

Same makers, tke Erik, go from ane community to the next to share what they do. (Mitch Altman probably tops the list of makers who wll travel anywhere, anytime tintraduce new people to hacking and making) Makers who've created successful busi nesses are increasingly inthe spotlight, to. Bre Pettis had a great year, establishing MakerBot as the frontrunner in consumer makezine.com/38 30 printing and then merging with one of the largest industrial 30 printing compa ries, Stratasys.

Quin Etnyre of (techknow was invited to Maker Faire Rome to give a talk titled “Lessons from a 12-year- ld CEO." He tweeted that he had met the mayor of Rome and saw the Pope. The second annual virtual Maker Camp engaged rmilions of young makers, and Maker Corps organized summer internships for 108, college-age makers to engage young mak- ersat 34 host sites around the country. 2013 was an awesome year for ‘makers.
