Two same-size items: Pack of playing cards (top) and circuit board with fan and electronic components (bottom).

Detailed Description

The small computer, or “micro-controller,” at the bottom of this photo controls the operation of two video cameras mounted on the 10-story Dream Inn hotel in Santa Cruz, California. The cameras take 10-minute videos of Santa Cruz Main Beach and Cowells Beach every half hour during daylight hours (view the most recent images). The micro-controller, mounted near the cameras in a weatherproof box, processes the imagery and stores the data.
