Thanks for posting about this, Danny.  I'm backing it (and spread the word).

Subject: [Noisebridge-discuss] Colombian hackerspace kickstarter project for	DSLR hacking

I visited the Bogotá
 hackerspace, Hackbo, a month or so ago, and chatted to them a bit about
 how the space is working. It's a really nice hackerspace -- in a 
residential block, but with four or so big well-equipped rooms, and with
 a really busy community, and whiteboards full of really detailed 
ongoing projects, which I sort of feel is the real metric of a great hackerspace.

 of the projects that has shifting from being a prototype to being a 
potential full-time work for a bunch of the key hackers is this:


 a linux-based plugin for Digital SLR cameras (if you don't see your 
camera listed, ask, because they're adding them as they go) that gives 
you bluetooth LE remote operation, background transfer to online picture
 services via your phone or wifi. The hardware will be openhardware, the
 code is FLOSS. The device is going to sell for $150 USD ($170 canadian 
-- they're working with a Canadian group to do the logistics).

 I just noticed that they're 3 days to go on their kickstarter, but 
still have a way to go. I don't have any financial connection with these
 guys or the hackerspace, but I try to plug good hacking projects when I
 can. I think this'd be a fun gadget to have if you have a DSLR and are 
interested in doing some connected messing with it, either with the 
existing features of Lumera or extending it.

That's all! 

Feel free to forward this around to any communities you think might be interested!
