Game Camera for Shockwave and Flash

I came across PlaydoCAM today. Looks to be an “eyeToy” for Shockwave and Flash. Well, not really the hardware, but the software. It works with an “ordinary web camera”. It works without any new Xtras, so it must be using Flash’s ability to get cam input. It probably does this through the Flash Xtra for Shockwave. Looks like this is commercial development — nothing for developers to see here — but it looks like the first instance of using this functionality that I have seen since the release of Flash 7/Shockwave 10.

    Really cool! I didn’t know this could be done with Shockwave.
