    Problem is passing an open wifi network, and having enough time to connect. No problem in philly, soon enough. There making the whole thing a giant hotspot.

    If youre willling to invest ina new phone plan - look into the sprint hack and do this

    Ok it's good friday and crap is on the tv's :P

    So i might start the project today

    Here are a some pics of it and as you can see there is a ****load of componets to solder in lucky for me the chips are pre programed

    Also I have a old webcam which does 640 x 680 and powers on and off by power and is very small when taken out of it's case so i might use a relay to trigger the cam to take a pic altho light would be needed so i'll think about that later as an option

    for getting light for the camera you could use a IR led so that the camera see the area light up and not the person
