This video is my submission to Microsoft's Robotics@Home Competition. I developed a robotic video tripod which I call the "SmartTripod". It runs on a Parallax Eddie robot and Microsoft's Robotics Developer Studio (RDS). There is another video on my channel which is kind of an "appendix" to this one--it contains a cooking video I created to demonstrate the capabiliites of the SmartTripod. You can find that video here: http://youtu.be/rhmcqUx4PHI

UPDATE:
A number of people have asked about the parts list for the SmartTripod so they can build their own. I've posted it here: http://goo.gl/0JaKVK. Feel free to reach out to me if you're interested in building your own and using the SmartTripod software.
