This is a tool for thinking about the mechanics of a six-degrees-of-freedom GoPro camera stabiliser.
I want to be able to film my mountain runs without the images looking like some kind of Jason Bourne fight scene.
Ideally, I’d like to use bearings which offer reasonably low friction, rather than rely on expensive and fragile stepper motors to maintain the camera’s position/orientation.
This stage of the work provides a way to think about the three translational motions which I need to avoid transmitting to the camera itself. It also allows me to assess how much friction occurs within plastic linear bearings when under load.
