Half-way done cleaning my room. Time to do laundry.

I've been browsing the net for toys: Axis 2100 Network Camera ... fun.

Too bad...

It looks all sexied out and still only gives a 640X480 resolution. When are they going to come up with something better?

Re: Too bad...

Dude, it's a network camera --- plugs right into ethernet, runs its own webserver... you can log into it and run your own programs on it. The damn thing runs Linux internally. How fucking cool is that? 640 is more than sufficient for a webcam.

Psshhh...whatever. Doesn't matter what it can do if you still look grainy on full screen :-)

Re: Too bad...

You don't run webcams full screen, dude. Most of them are 320x240 ... when you're streaming video over the shitty existing Internet, having digital-camera-quality 2048x1536 resolution isn't a concern..

Re: Too bad...

Internet 2 will have full screen web cams with digital camera resolution. Then it'll be worth it to make a web cam look so sexied out.

Oh, man, I've been wanting one of those network cams for months now. *drool*
We've got a couple of these cameras for work. Although I don't get to touch them. :(
