Another Project Cafe Camera Rumor

May 29, 2011


Earlier today, Wii 2 Blog ran the following story about Project Cafe having a front facing camera.

We recently ran a story discussing rumours that the Wii 2′s controller might have a front-facing camera. Now we have more information that seems to add a little more weight to those rumours.

In a quarterly results call, the company OmniVision hinted that they were getting ready to ship their 8-megapixel camera for use in a smartphone, possibly the Apple’s iPhone. The most interesting thing was that they hinted that they were also getting ready to supply cameras to a gaming console.

The console wasn’t named but it is unlikely to be for a Microsoft console because the next generation Xbox hasn’t even been announced, and OmniVision let it slip that it was for a console that would be ready in the next several months.

That pretty much leaves the NGP and the Wii 2. The NGP is definitely a possibility but then again Sony would probably use their own cameras. This leaves only the Wii 2.

I really like the idea of a front facing camera on Project Cafe’s remote, although I am curious how you would use it.

Lego V-30 Warhawk

V-30 Warhawk 01

This amazing plane by Jon Hall really caught my eye. Such a great use of parts.

It’s also interesting to see what kind of process builders use to develop their ideas. Jon sketches many of his designs beforehand, and he’s shared some of those sketches on Flickr.

Casey Edwards came up with the great idea of combining Mario characters with X-Men heros. The result is quite awesome.
