    alright this thread WILL seem crazy, but keep reading and you might be able to make some sense out of it. Me and my friend are making two Halo ODST helmets and we plan to have Night vision in both of them. However, therein lies the problem. One possible solution we have is to mount an iPod and a webcam Inside of Romeo's Sniper goggles and use a in-helmet focusing lens to focus on the iPod screen. The reason we are using a webcam instead of a iPhone camera is because we don't feel like/have the money to buy(ing) iPhones, and we are unsure if iPhones can even detect infrared light. Our plan is to have IR LEDs illuminate the area and have a webcam display the infrared video on an iPod touch screen via modded USB cable.

    My question is this: is there a jailbreak app that enables the user to receive video feed from a webcam via USB link, and if not, how do i create one?

    You don't have money to buy a used iPhone, but you are trying to make fully working ODST helmets?....

    trust me, its pretty cheap to make an ODST helmet. about a 50-80 dollar flat fee, no data plans, and plus we'd need two iPhones :/ (which we dont even know if they can detect infrared light, most likely not.)

    you dont need jb for this but the only thing i can come up with it jumicam. It records the webcam off of the computer and displays it on your ipod. Idk if this is what you were asking and sorry mods for bumping a two day old thread but it was to help
