While daydreaming at work today, quickly flicking between Outlook and Nabaztalk on the sly when noone was looking, I wondered to myself if Violet might ever include webcams/pinhole camera's into Nabaztag's eyes, I mean he can 'smell' through his belly button (may have been a better choice to drill that hole where his nose is, but nevermind).
So I was daydreaming then into carefully drilling holes where the rabbits eyes are and positioning a camera behind the casing (camera dependant on space) so that he can 'see'. By 'See' I mean perhaps 2 USB webcams equipped with motion detecting software (freeware available) that pick up movement in a room. Here are just a few of the potential uses I can think of :
:arrow: Burglar Alarm - 'Shouts' at whoever is in the room, telling them to leave.
:arrow: Welcome Home - Greets whoever enters the room.
:arrow: Individual Messages - Facial recognition software that could detect an individual and playback messages that are only for that person.
Im sure others will think of many more!
This concept could be integrated into a program that sends messages to the API, relaying them to the rabbit. Let me know what you guys think, or am I going bunny insane!!!
