But my idea is what if the jailbreak community or third party company designed a camera for the ipad it could eaither fit in the bezel and connect via bluetooth or since the iPads screen swivels or orients all ways it could go into the 30 pin connector it could be like an accessory that would act within an app built for it. Going to sleep but just had to share that. Probably already thought of but coudnt find it. Also it shoudnt be impossible since there already are accesories for the iphone and ipod touch that interact with the phone and make it do stuff. Also since there is a spot in the bezel you could fit a bluetooth one in there... probably not but the 30 pin connector idea isnt bad right? I REALLY WANT ONE BUT ALSO WANT A WEBCAM FOR LIKE SKYPE AND OTHER STUFF!!!!

    COME ON PPL!!!! I WANT IT!!!!!!!!! THINK THINK THINK.... Ok right now you can get data from the ipad. That is proven by the camera connection kit. So cant we design both an app and a camera for it. We can get a mac camera and fix it or just another small camera and make it usable for like video calls....
    I hope someone creates this and charges $1000 for the app. I know you would certainly pay this price. Please continue to drive up your demand by begging. Such drama with your iPad.

    May your $1000 app come to you soon.

    Ya everyone will pay for an accessory that cost more than the product.... Whos begging no one is going to apple and saying please give us a camera adapter please over and over. We are trying to be respectful hackers and making one ourselves for cheap. You have a problem with that

    Thats a good idea but @fletch 33
    It wouldn't sit on it if it was in your hands or if it was on a dock. If its lying flat on the table it still wouldnt

    nice idea though anyway
    its been said that using the iPad camera connection kit , sound can go thru the usb...so adding a mic to that camera wouldnt be hard to implement

    I am using this app as well, works great. Only thing missing is to transfer th pics offline
    Otherwise works well via wifi and bluetooth

    There is already a mic in the iPad so we would not need that

    But it can be done

    Because although it has a mic, a better one can be used...if this thing was to come out and it didn't have a mic then that would mean that you would haw to flip the thing and the mic would be covered or muffled...so mic right infront of the camera would Make sense

    just a thought.
    is it possible to use the camera connection kit, put your "USB" driven camera into video mode, and have what we are after?
    So many cameras out there today brag that they can be used as a webcam.
    I don't have an ipad yet, but hope to have one soon, and this IS dear to my heart. My children's grandparents are 5,000 miles away from here, and skype with camera keeps us in touch so the kids know who "grandpa gum" is.

    Well I don't know about the iPod touch maybe but definitely the second iPad because apple has already created a platform of video calling and there gonna put more devices to support it.

    Well of course, but that won't stop someone from at least releasing a way to get a common webcam to interface, and then let the community of devs find out how to make it work. It's really not that far of a reach.
