I'm an ecologist at Princeton University and I'm trying to find someone to help me build a set of camera traps that play audio cues when triggered and video-recording animal responses. I have plans already for how to construct the devices (down to configurations of circuitboards, etc.) from a published paper (Suraci et al. 2017; https://besjournals.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/2041-210X.12711), but don't have the capacity myself to translate those plans into actual equipment. I reached out to the authors on the paper, but the tech they used to build the devices no longer makes them. I've contacted Microsoft's hardware development division, to the engineering department at my university, and pinged by friends who are engineers trying to find someone who had the capacity to help me physically make these devices, but with no luck. Does anyone know of a good place to go to get this kind of equipment made or the types of people I should be talking to?
Thanks for your comments and suggestions!
