Fully self-contained wireless (802.11b) video camera from Linksys

There are lots of webcammy things out there these days...why is this one different?

For one thing - 802.11b wireless networking built in.

For another thing - A "security mode" where the camera will email you a photo of whatever just moved across its field of vision...if you don't like what you see (or I suppose if you *do* like what you see) you can log into the camera's built in webserver and keep track of what's going on.

And for a third thing - it's $200.

The potential for good security, surveillance, and monitoring is huge lately, and this extends those capabilities another step...and not a small step at that. Of course the potential for abuse is huge here too - we'll have to see how this one fits into the current controversy surrounding these things.

I'm just trying to figure out how to use it in a piece of art...
