Step 38: Video Switch:

Picture of Video Switch:
You have two cameras but only one display. You need a video switch! You can buy one, but I made my own from recycled materials.

Step 1. Find an old VCR, tape deck, or anything with RCA jacks in the trash. I managed to get my RCA jacks from the same machine as my camera columns. I could have used this soggy camcorder that I found on the way to Wolfgang's place. Flooding makes for a lot of interesting scrap.
