A large part of the Bigshot project was supported by the
Computer Vision Laboratory
at Columbia University. The
concept of a dynamo-powered camera was developed using a DURIP grant from the
Office of Naval Research (ONR).
We are grateful to Behzad Kamgar-Parsi and Tom McKenna at ONR for their enduring
support. The fabrication of the prototypes and the field tests were partly supported
Google Research Award. We thank Maryam Kamvar, Alfred Spector, and Kristen Morrissey at
Google for valuable discussions.
