open camera controller in use

the nintendo DS camera controller is an open source DIY project designed to give advanced DSRL users a way to conveniently tinker with their cameras settings. the project is led by photographer steve chapman who uses the popular gaming platform as an interactive camera controller. chapman has a full walk-through tutorial online that shows users exactly how to make the system work with their DSLR camera. the final product gives photographers eight hours of battery life and a slew of features like sound and motion sensing. the system is ultimately for hardcore users, but could hint at a new camera accessory for mainstream users. plus if you get bored of taking pictures, you can always play a game of mario cart.
