this evening, in a brief reality check for maker faire, jas asked an important question at this part of the process. something to the effect of "at this point, how hard would it be to just stitch the images and hack tbeta to read the stitched stream instead of a camera?"
we discussed it briefly, but it became a backburner thought pretty quickly.
after arriving to my new room at my new home, and doing my usual google reader thing, an idea struck me.
how hard would it be to just hack tbeta to do away with the camera handling all together and link it to our blob objects right now?
there's definitely some evasion in the question, and it doesn't solve all of our problems immediately, but i think it's worth considering.
