The PSP camera hasn’t been released here yet, but it can easily be imported from any number of speciality Web sites. It turns out that using the camera as a Web cam, while not officially supported by Sony, isn’t so hard to accomplish. The dude from GadgetMadness, who, it turns out, is sort of a Web cam guru, already has a makeshift PSP Web cam up and running. The only item you’ll need outside of a PSP and the camera is any sort of composite video to USB adapter. (The GM guy uses one made by Adaptec.) And that’s it—instant PSP Web cam.
The guy has a Justin.tv account set up to broadcast all the craziness that happens in his little corner of the world. Right now (around 11:55 a.m. EDT) there’s some sort of concert going on. Pretty neat, and it shows what even a hair’s width on ingenuity can get you.
To GadgetMadness: I expect madness from this Web cast every so often. Please don’t leave me hanging.
