[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] N800 as a webcam

Why do it via USB when you have both bluetooth and
WiFi?  There are a number of fairly lame
self-contained net/web cameras and most run some kind
of embedded Linux.  I assume you could put some kind
of web-server with a live video object or a
refreshing gif/png/jpeg (and more interesting things
with the new GPS API).

Even if you do use USB, a network device would work.

This is actually the sort of thing I am thinking of
doing with other hardware (but the N800 is a very
good match in many ways based on the specifications).
