How would you vertically tilt a camera 180 degrees using mirrors?
I'm trying to add a pan/tilt mechanism to a Raspberry Pi's camera. The camera uses one of those flat cables with unstranded wires, and even with a strain gauge, I don't trust it to handle repeated bending, so I'm trying to design a tilt mechanism that allows the camera to be rigidly mounted so no wires move. The tilting also has to happen very quickly, so I'm trying to minimize the amount of mass I need to move.
Then I saw the Oculus kit that actuates a mirror to effectively tilt a laptop's fixed webcam. I'm trying to extend this idea, but I having trouble working out the mechanics that would allow the tilt to extend to 180 degrees. The layout in the Oculus's mechanism only supports a tilt angle of about 90 degrees, and the mirrors are relatively large. Is it possible to modify this to support 180 degrees?
Are there other ways to "bend" the view of a camera without having to move the actual camera?
