This resource from Boxford describes a project that is intended to allow a camera operator to get smooth panning shots from a cheap tripod by adding a fluid block between the tripod and the camera. Included are sample CAD files for manufacture.

The fluid head is shown in action via a photograph and screenshots of CAD files are described. It introduces the idea of using smart materials and gives brief assembly instructions.

Curriculum links include the use of CAD/CAM to produce products and using smart materials to solve design problems.
