It is designed to continuously film insect or other small animal activity in the wild. <strong>PICT</strong> is an affordable and powerful solution for those who desire to film for extended time in remote places. It can be remotely controlled within up to 100 meters using a smartphone, a tablet or a laptop. <strong>PICT</strong> can be used for a variety of purposes including, and not limited to, plant-insect interactions, bird feeding or nesting, amphibians&rsquo; nocturnal activities, predation by reptiles, insect&rsquo;s behaviour.</p>\n\n<p>The guide provides step-by-step instructions to build, set-up, and use a <strong>PICT</strong>. It is intended to be accessible to anyone with minimal handiwork or computer skills. The interaction with <strong>PICT</strong> has been extensively tested on Windows (7 and 10) computers and Android (7,8, 9 and 10) smartphones. In addition, the guide provides solutions for macOS, iOS.</p>\n\n<p>The guide is provided as a PDF file (.pdf). The python and Matlab codes provided in the guide are also available here as text files. Note that the latter format must be preferred to copy-paste the content. PDF file format does not maintain space characters used for indentation which will ultimately result in a unusable python code.</p>",
