LV2 360 Camera Module
For our LV2 rocket we envisioned a full, wrap-around camera device that would let you replay video from the launch that would look like you were flying on the rocket!
In order to do this we needed to put together enough small cameras with a very wide field-of-view. We chose the popular GoPro cameras because of their availability and performance.
The next problem was how to get them in the rocket. LV2 has a modular design, so we only needed to make a new module that had the same interface as the rest of the rocket, then it could be bolted into place wherever we needed. We 3D printed an armature that would hold each camera in place and machined an aluminum tube to fit the rocket and hold the camera mount.
