Introduction: Make a Cheap Head Cam

About: Trying to figure out how to make a Minecraft RCON client... PLEASE message me if you know how. (Then I will subscribe if you remind me). (Like this http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/852452-minecraft-rcon-t...

I always thought that those head-mounted cams were pretty cool, one day I thought about making one. It would be a lot cheaper that the other video cameras, so here is what I made. 

- I used an iPod nano 5g for the video (you can find one on eBay because they are out of circulation).
- 2 rubberbands held the iPod on (I tested it on a few walks, nothing fell off ;).
- A headlamp strapped the iPod to my head!

This was a pretty fun project, for it was simple and cheap! I encourage you to build your own!

***Make sure that you have the ipod on while putting the rubber bands on so that you don't have the light in the way of your footage. By the way, if you don't block the iPod-Computer spot (where you plug it in), you don't have to worry about taking off the rubber bands!
