DIY Winner Showcase: The $20 Trail Camera

Don Kirk of Indianapolis, IN shows IEEE Spectrum's Harry Goldstein and Josh Romero the guts of this $20 trail camera on display at the Austin, Texas Maker Faire yesterday. Harry had to shoulder his way in among the throngs of people craning their necks for a look at the winning entry in the Make Magazine/IEEE Spectrum DIY contest concluded in September. About 25,000 people were expected to attend the Maker Faire in Austin on Saturday and Sunday.
