Need A USB Camera Recommendation
Hey all, it's been a lonnng time. And honestly, the last two years have been very difficult on my family and I, but re-fitting my iRobot sculpture has been helping me get through it all.
I've replaced all the cell phone batteries with battery blanks and adapted a new, faster face-tablet so it can run more videos, also with a battery blank (using the voltage regulator from the original battery, of course), so I've removed all chemical reactions from the sculpture.
But now it's time to hardwire the EZB V4/2 and a USB camera to the MS Surface Pro that is housed in the pedestal (a couple years late, sorry DJ). So I'm looking for recommendations on a USB camera, preferable one that doesn't come from China (because I don't want to wait that long) that works with the new Synthiam ARC.
Or will just ANY USB camera work with ARC?
I don't need a housing and I can use one of my old EZ_Robot camera's heat sinks if need be. Here's an example of what I'm looking for (but it's in China)
Most of what I'm finding are wide-angle, security-type cameras. Will that work okay with face tracking? Are there USB cameras that work with ARC better than others? Any links would be much appreciated.
I'm working on getting the EZB hard wired to the MS Surface as well, thanks to all the old threads and particularly, to Dave Schulpius, so I think I have that covered. And yes, I've upgraded the firmware so I'm making some progress.
I hope you all have been healthy and reasonably happy these past couple of years. It's good to be back
