Found a $2.99 webcam that works with Linux!

I don't know if anyone is in the market for a cheap webcam. I run a few labs for Eckerds and this morning I was cleaning out some back stock and came across several Concord EyeQ Easy Too's. Checked the price and they ring up for $2.99.

I was thinking to myself "slim chance in you know where of this working" but turns out these guys are built on the SE402/EP 800 chipsets and work with the "epcam" driver under Linux.

So I get to go home tonight and upgrade my B&W Quickcam
