[DPRG] Cheap Vision!

Stumbled on this at the Robot Club of Yahoo:  GameBoy cameras are on
sale for $9.97 each at http://www.toysrus.com (search for gameboy camera
at their site).  They may be available even cheaper at ebay.  They
appear to be quite hackable - the camera can be detached from the
cartridge, giving you direct access to its Mitsubishi M64282FP
Artificial Retina Chip.  Just clock the video data out of it a pixel at
a time.  Info on hacking them can be found at:
