There is no cable connected to the LBB or the Theta S in that picture. The line that you see is a cord attached for stability. The LBB is actually not even in the picture but at ground level. I was just stressing the ability of the system to take a series of High Resolution images at an 8 second interval with the ability to view each image within a few seconds of it's capture and processing. It worked great on the bench but I wanted to try a realtime application of the system. It worked well. I was able to log into the LBB during image capturing and view images in near realtime in either equipectangular or 360 VR (even with Google Glasses) modes.
Most of the testing was done in the evening for heat reasons. I had a neighbor call and ask if I knew that there was a blue light flashing above my house. I think I will need to put in a request to Ricoh Theta about an API to turn off the LEDs. Could you or Jesse pass that on for me?
