'Frankencamera': A Giant Leap For Digital Photos?

,----[ Quote ]
| According to Levoy, these are just a couple of 
| examples of how programmers could change the future 
| of photography with the Frankencamera. The key is 
| that the camera uses a Linux operating system. All 
| digital cameras are essentially minicomputers, says 
| Levoy, and they can be modified a bit by the 
| photographer. But the manufacturer determines what 
| features are available. Linux is "open source," which 
| means the camera owner can change everything about 
| the electronic guts.

| Techsol is shipping a Linux-ready "TPC-43B" 4.3-inch 
| touch-panel PC equipped with its ARM-based Medallion 
| CPU Module and Power-over-Ethernet support, and 
| targeting building automation and factory HMI 
| applications. Meanwhile, Techsol announced its tenth 
| year of designing low-power computers based on a 
| variety of low-power ARM-based embedded computers.



Open source camera could pave the way for open source hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| Recently a Techrepublic reader sent me a link to this story from Science Daily
| about a professor (Mark Levoy) of computer science at Stanford who is developing
| an open source camera. The article tells the story of a fledgling program,
| Computational Photography, which researches photography to help improve cameras.
| Mr. Levoy developed the camera so that other computational photographers could
| help improve the software.


Frankencamera is open source, runs on Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Photo scientists at Stanford University have conceived what is probably the
| world's first open-source camera. Their contraption, dubbed the
| Frankencamera, consists of a Nokia N95 mobile phone camera module, circuit
| board, a couple of lenses from Canon and Linux for all the open-source
| goodness.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
