    Taking photographs from an elevated vantage point almost always provides images that are unique. Here is s video that shows us how make the Sky Eye / Polecam, a pole-mounted camera is fashioned from servo motors, a digital camera, and a standard remote control.

    As for the polecam.. unteresting concept but not how I'd have done it.

    Not being able to see your shot is bound to be annoying, so a webcam to allow aiming would be good.

    Be nice to do it solo too rather than having to use a friend.
