The robots are coming for trainspotters. A piece of software called Trainbot can watch a piece of train track, detect passing trains, and then stitch together panoramic images of the full-length trains.

The software for running your own trainbot is available on Github and "should work with any video4linux USB cam, or Raspberry Pi camera v3 modules". (via nelson)
