Cheap mini wireless cameras
November 3, 2009
I was playing around with some code for machine vision (object/facial/color/motion-detection) a long time ago, and I'm thinking to put a camera on a robot sooner or later and see where that'll take me.
So I was looking for cheap wireless cameras and I was astonished to find these:
2.4GHz Mini Wireless Color Camera w/Built-in Microphone - $34.50
2.4GHz Wireless Survellience Camera Kit w/4-Channel Wireless Receiver & Infrared Color Video Camera - $39.99
Holy crap they're cheap :/ So I was thinking what is the catch???
I'm aware that I would need an analog to digital converter of some kind in order to hook the receiver up to my PC, but I believe I've seen those for around 15 bucks some time ago.
And if there is no catch then howcome everybody doesn't have one or two on all their robots allready :D
