Symet+micro camera

After some time modifying the design and testing with various combinations of components, we present our version of symet with built-in micro camera. This experimental video device is a solar junkbot to call serendipity in the video shots. Subliminal video stream is going to be analyzed by OpenCV to extract meaningful images and make new assemblies.
