First thing I want to do is to make a device that copies the images from my CF card to a HD using certain rules I want to program in Phyton. This should be fairly simple and a good learning experience.
Then I want to use it for making 'stacked' macro photos where the camera is moved 1mm between images that are later combined in a bought program.
I also want to create a GigaPan (http://gigapan.org/cms/shop/epic-pro
) like device that will take a lot of images and puts them together in a giant photo.
I want one for Internet use, browsing and email.
One for my MySQL database.
One with a rsync server to copy images offsite.
A couple to run TVHeadend distributing TV over the network.
One with XMBC under the TV in the living room.
(these are only the first ideas)
I'm at the end of the queue (just registered my interest) so please can you guys crank 500,000 copies out of the factories?
