    Wow! Just found out that the Sony PlayStation 2 EyeToy Cam is the perfect Webcam for the CarPC!!

    640x480x 30 Frames/sec, veeeerrryy sensitive at night, very fast and sharp, beautifull colors!

    And: it has a built in microphone!

    I found the drivers on bittorrent. I seems there is a D-Link VGA Webcam built in the EyeToy case.



    I found the cam for about 20$ bundled with eyetoy play 2

    could you not make a second version that will allow people to see the preview window when capturing or give a choice so that people with a higher spec system (that can cope with it) can pick weather they want the preview or not?

    cheers mate

    Funny. I've seen the game yesterday for the first time. A friend showed it to me and I thought exactly the same thing.
    Didn't know that it also had a microphone, but the picture quality was really good. I'll probably buy this webcam for my car.

    Totally possible by running multiple instances of the program.

    Prefect: This is an awesome tool! I'm going to pick up an eyetoy in a couple minutes here! Do you think it will work well for capture high motion video, for example, from the front of a car and close to the road? Like in that first video you posted

    I cant see it being better than a medium priced webcam.

    thing is no comparative test exists, and when reviews get done, none are done in low light its just some fat geek waving to his friend at another desk and comparing the quality under office lighting conditions.
