Mobile webcamStill, the great thing - a mobile phone with a built-in camera also supports Java! Adding here the presence of GPRS-access to the Internet, we obtain a common fairy-tale image is also a huge expanse for imagining also the implementation of various software solutions. Not technology, but the illusion of the poet! Apparently, satiated with the discoveries, the Englishman David Kaspar (David Kaspar) decided to present the fruit of his imagination, laying out for public view the development of Mowecam (14 KB), which stands for Mobile Web Camera.
As well as befitting any webcam, Mowecam removes at certain intervals the pores of the image from the camera of the mobile phone also saves them on the creator's server of the program. Find photos on the Internet is not difficult, just dial the address http://www.davidkaspar.com/mowecam/getimage.php?email=[unique key], in which place as the key indicates the email address specified in the settings of the application ( see screenshots below).
Since Mowecam uses GPRS on all one hundred camera, we recommend at the same time in the phone parameters to allow this application to work with these key components (for the program, naturally). Otherwise, "there will be no kin", as tricky questions about the regularity of accessing the MIDlet to the resources of the mobile device will make their bad correction.
Okay, figured out the permissions, we'll go to the settings. Among the available: the server address that stores the pictures (so far only one is available - the author's, but in the near future David Kaspar is obliged to open the source of the PHP script for its relocation to any suitable web hosting), the time of the camera, e-mail size of future images. Recall that the time-out should be selected by the experimental route depending on the "weight" of photos and the quality of domestic GPRS-connection. It is possible that there may be a situation at what time the program will not succeed in sending pictures to the server.
In conclusion, we give screenshots of Mowecam in "military", working condition. Immediately we apologize for the ridiculous photoimage as a sample, since the available emulator of the phone does not allow you to manipulate the virtual camera in any way.
Practical application to such a mobile web-complex, I think, our readers will find without much difficulty. Let's just say that the project is being deployed non-stop, and in the future it is expected that it will be possible to detect the movements of the objects to be shot, to notify by SMS or e-mail, but many other useful things seem to be similar. In general, we go more often to the site of the developer also do not forget about "Computerru-Online".
