    to be honest, your idea is awesome, you deserve a feature on instructable, i dont understand what is wrong with instructables lately, they are kind of being partial towards new users and not really giving any one chance to improve, everyone doesn't own an expensive camera to click awesome pictures, instructables really need to cut the fancy crap and support quality content creators.

    dont get discouraged by number harishk99, you are amazing, i love this idea and set of instructions, thanks for sharing :)
