Technarium in Vilnius is joining Hackaday World Create Day 2016 to develop our Camera Trap idea: https://hackaday.io/project/11088-camera-traps-for-citizen-science
We aim to create cheap, DIY Camera Traps that would be easy enough to build and use for citizen science. The traps could be deployed at a much larger scale than currently possible, as current kits are simply too expensive. They could be used in the developing countries, both as a tool for wildlife protection and citizen science as a tool for science education. They would be immensely useful for individuals, groups and schools to set up citizen science efforts around the world as well.
One of the concepts we are working on relies on using a Raspberry Zero - it's functionality (particularly ability to connect any webcam, which mean high quality surveillance), and low cost is what makes it perfect and accessible for building DIY Camera Traps in Tanzania and absolutely elsewhere in the world. Plan B would be based on Key Chain Camera and Arduino, which is easier to acquire and build in the hackerspace - but possibly more complicated for individual users.
Cheap DIY Camera Traps can become a universal tool that will upturn the current citizen science and educational practices in this area, as currently available Camera Traps are difficult to afford (cheapest being ~$100 per kit), which limits citizen science efforts greatly, especially in developing countries.
We aim to build a functional DIY Camera Trap kit for ~$15-20.
