This (admittedly not very interesting) pic of me was taken with my Triggertrap when someone joined the Triggertrap newsletter.
Today's post is brought to you by the how-bloody-meta-is-this department...
So, I've been playing with different concepts of automating the taking of photos, by using the Triggertrap universal camera trigger I invented.
As part of the upcoming Triggertrap website (it's launching on Monday!), I was working on the updated Newsletter sign-ups, and I had an idea: Wouldn't it be cool if someone signing up for a newsletter triggered the camera?
So that's what I did - Now, whenever someone signs up for the Triggertrap newsletter, it automatically takes a photo of me, sitting at my desk, slaving away. Okay, so it isn't a very interesting photograph, but that isn't the point - it's kind of awesome that my camera is taking photos whenever someone else does something.
If you want to find out how it's done (and if you, too, want to take a photo of me)... Sign up for the newsletter; the explanation is on the sign-up confirmation page. (Pretty sneaky, eh?)
