First Rove

I did my first rove with the infrared camera and iPad yesterday.  It worked well at Bat Cave to do the fly through manually for visitors.  They really liked being able to see where the bats go since we keep that part of the cave dark.  There were some logistical problems with the two way traffic, but that is probably going to be a trial and error process to figure out what works for each of us.

    Hey Lacey, Great to hear you took the camera and iPad out for a spin. How did the visitors react? Did you get any interesting questions related to the technology or work that has been done with the bats? Keep it up… can’t wait to hear about your next venture out.

    Lacey, I’m impressed that you used both the iPad and the thermal camera. Sounds like you got good feedback on the fly-throughs. Like Louise, I’m curious to hear more. How did you integrate the camera–was that with the same visitors or different visitors from the ones who saw the fly-through? Did you talk to families or college students? The whole range??
