Brad from LucidScience sent us his latest hack. This is a two-parts guide. On the first part, he explains the basics about micro cameras and the different types, talks about the CCD imaging chip, and demonstrates how can someone interface it into a TV set. On the second part, he shows a very simple way to make a fairly bright and quite simple IR illuminator for night vision. You can find more info in these links: Part 1, Part 2. Thanks [Brad].
