The plan(Tm)

Salvage or buy webcams from laptops (got the idea from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CouxmNqxO4A) and salvage a lens from an optical drive (got the idea from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auQwOtrUN5A). We do have a large stack of optical drives in the cupboard near the game room. This way we should end up with something small, that can be useful in many situations.
