    Near the beginning of the semester, when Vince moved to California and left lots of techish stuff in the ML lounge, I found a camera. Specifically, a Kensington 67014 usb webcam. It looks to be about 1999ish, being a late '90s, early '00s shade of beige. It works, though I usually have to restart the display program a few times before the image is clear. It looks decent. See some dice.

    I'm trying to think of a nice project for it, perhaps facial recognition and fishbowl attendance monitoring. It doesn't work with the video manipulating code I wrote in cs25, though I could probably mess with the gqcam source.
