A Dangerous Game with Fire & Ice: Methane Gas on Lake Lauerz

Central Switzerland in Timelapse

Video


The past weeks have been extremely busy with the new semester started. As a result, no time for new posts on this blog for nearly three weeks :-(.

Until my projects-in-progress about MQTT, Time-of-Flight sensors, LoRa (long range) wireless networking and a cool robotics project are ready, here is something to share with you all: a cool time-lapse video of my home and work area, created by Pirmin Henseler: 2 years, 30’000 pictures, 2 broken cameras, and the result is amazing:

It reminds me again how beautiful the world is.

Happy Timelapsing 🙂
