Cheap Rotating Webcam
« on: July 05, 2008, 10:12:39 PM »
Hey,

I need a webcam for my robot. It needs to be wireless and needs to be able to rotate. By cheap I mean $40 max. If anyone can help me it would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Roberto

make your own

one servo or DC motor - around $1o
and then you need to find some way to control the servo AND read the input from the camera

If it exists, you'll find it here. This is where the eBay vendors find what they sell.
