USB WebCam on Android

(&Handsfree Social Media Sharing Apps)

Some Interesting Research Project from a Japan Developer to connect a external USB Webcam to a Android in these case a custom Galaxy Nexus.

Why is these are so interesting ?
As soon you can connect a USB Webcam to your Android its a smal step to connect a DSLR to your Android and have full Internet Upload / Stream capability. Most DSLR get recognised as Webcam to . Lets imagine having a nice Lens for your Hangout outdoor event or Report from some Street Event.

Some Android Apps support already nice autoshare funktions mostly interesting for picture and media sharing when you dont have many hands free. For myself i use these Apps to feed my Facebook Flash Image player. Both works better than in the video 😉
