This project originated from the urge to create tools that help designers create professional results in time of budget cuts. With “Tools for Design we aim to create a community that helps in the development of instruments used in the design process.
The Stead i Cam is an example of one of these tools. It supports smooth and professional moving video footage. It is created from a single sheet of laser-cut material, making it easy for any student to create and assemble. This open-source project cuts costs for such a professional tool and makes it accessible for every student.
The Stead i Cam is designed by Frits Stam en Koen de Greef
