Raspberry Pi announces a camera module
This is a big deal. There will soon be a $25 HD camera module available for purchase that works with the Raspberry Pi unit. So many awesome projects come to mind, not the least of which is a complete day-to-day, webcam-equipped linux system that plugs into any HDMI-capable TV, a front door camera/peephole system, a party photo booth, and a self-contained, stand-alone video conference system for friends and relatives. With this new camera module, the possibilities of ways to use a $35 Raspberry Pi are endless! Also, the new A Model will be out soon, which is only $25. So you could have a fully working computer system with webcam for $50!
