The camera controller box is an easy way to rotate a webcam from a PC or remotely through the internet.

In this project I used a Teensy 2.0 micro-controller since it was available, but you can use any other MCU like an ATtiny85 or an atmega328. The servo model number is S9001.
I designed a place for a weight on the base part, in order to prevent vibrations and to keep the camera from falling off while it rotates.
The servo adaptor part is based on thing:19940.

for teensy 2.0 we are using Aurdino IDE to copy the program into the Microcontroller. Coming to the AT tinny85 and ATMEGA 328 which device is to be used for dumping the program?

Try Arduino ISP sketch for uploading the binaries to smaller chips that don't have a bootloader (or can use the space it takes for something more productive). You can actually go even smaller than Attiny85 - check out this Attiny13 with Arduino IDE tutorial. If you can fit your code into the 1K flash and run it in 64bytes of RAM, there's nothing Attiny85 can do that Attiny13 can't. Regardless of the actual chip you'll pick, the principals of uploading the code into the chip using a programmer, such as the Arduino ISP (or a specialized device like AVR ISP), are the same.

I'm not sure that I understood your question but you can use those instructables:
atmega328: http://www.instructables.com/id/Bootload-an-ATmega328/
attiny85: http://www.instructables.com/id/Self-contained-16-Digit-display-Arduino-Attiny/step5/Burn-your-program-onto-the-ATtiny85/
If you use atmega328 you need to connect the servo signal to pin 9 (PB1).
For ATtiny85 you need to modify the library and use one of the pwm pins.

Nice work and well planned!
