Maker Daniel Colvin built this simple camera slider out of little more than wood, string and some hardware. The camera sits atop a platform and is pulled by a string using a K’nex geared motor.

If one wants to take simple tracking shots, conventional options use wheels and pipes, so it’s great to see Daniel using thrift as his motivator for this project.
