This is an amazing hack by educator Stu Lowe! Stu is always impressing us with his use of Makey Makey and today he found a great way to hack his Zoom calls and help his students when teaching through distance learning or remote learning. Check it out, it's so cool!
Super happy with this multi-camera setup for online workshops, presentations and @zoom_us using a @makeymakey to change smoothly with a fade between different cameras and slides. Can easily add more cams if needed for showing different things. @ipevo @OBSProject pic.twitter.com/JL2bJWIKNe— Stu Lowe (@stulowe80) December 4, 2020
More from Stu!
A little more detail on my @makeymakey driven multi camera @zoom_us setup. Also added a new camera to it on a long extension wire for moving around the room. Whole lot is running through @OBSProject #edtech pic.twitter.com/lWSkL86bBX— Stu Lowe (@stulowe80) December 8, 2020
We asked Stu how he did this in OBS and he has the Scenes switching on arrow keys using the Hot Key Settings. We also tried setting this up and we had arrow keys to show/hide slideshow, and different camera devices.
