Android smartphone(i have the vodafone 845 but as long as you are running android 2.0 up to 2.2 this will work for you)
internet connection
internet connection on your phone
acces to the android market

Step 1: step 1

Right lets get started:

On your Android smartphone go to the android market and search for "droidcam"(use wifi if possible)

Wile you wait for droidcam to download and install on you mobile go to your browser on your pc (firefox, internet explorer, etc) and type in www.dev47apps.com and download the droidcam for your pc (works with windows and linux only)
