I decided to try my hand at some time-lapse photography using the IR remote control I made for the Galileo.
I set the code to take a picture every 20 seconds and left the camera alone to do its thing…

Here is a picture of the Galileo setup:

The book is - Brother Odd by Dean Koontz.

The IR remote is built on a breadboard and being propped up to point it at the camera.

Here you can see the picture count being displayed on my laptop:

Brave New World - Aldous Huxley.

Here’s the result:
