Ideas for a creation? Answered

Hi all,

I've got an opportunity to lay hands on this sweet wifi webcam:  http://goo.gl/I4hpFZ

Thing is, I've already got one monitoring my 3D printer, and I'm not exactly chomping at the bit to spy on my roommates when I'm away.  I've got a couple ideas about what to do with it, but I thought I'd throw it open to the community:  got any cool ideas for interesting ways to use/alter/hack/repurpose something like this?

Currently I'm considering tearing into it and using the remotely controllable pan and tilt motors to turn it into a mars rover for my house, possibly fitted with a laser to annoy my cats.  What do you think?

Ian

Oh you know, just whatever. I'm being offered free toys so I wanted to have a cool project to make with them.

Here's something I was planning to do with the gopro I got but your cam may be easier to implement because it has the built in pan/tilt. Turn it into a sports skycam. I was going to go the single axis only, string up a line between the trees or goalposts and fabricate a remote controlled trolley fixed to the cam so it can ride back and forth. I had an R/C controlled model truck I was going to gut out for the drive. I guess if that cam has some kind of DVR recording function, you could film to tape/disk.

and welcome back, you seem devoid of ibles for a while.
