Iphone Video Rig

I made this iPhone rig with some metal scraps and HD Webcam to show the small screen’s content onto a big screen. There are programs one can install in the iPhone that allow you show the screen’s content, but it would not include your fingers’ activity in the shot. I needed to show our “Beyond Planet Earth AR” app, pointing at various areas of the interface and showing the difference between the AR icons outside the screen and the 3D activated inside, so I needed a broad view that included not only the screen but elements outside as well.

So I made this custom rig that holds the iPhone and holds a HD-manual-focus webcam (Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910) pointed at the iPhone’s screen. The rig is made out copper stripes shaped to “hug” the iPhone’s body, welded at the cross points to a central axis that extends up to hold the camera. The cable runs along the axis and connects to the computer through a USB extender for more mobility. It works great!
