    Right, first off I'd like to say that I highly doubt it, however I've been hearing talk that some dude reckons he can use the built-in light sensor as a camera.

    I haven't seen this anywhere on the net, but a mate of mine showed me the e-mail he got. I'll try get it off him if he hasn't scrapped it already.

    Soooo.... wadda you reckon?

    A light sensor is not a camera... it just tells you how much light is hitting it.

    Good Try, but a sensor is not a camera, no lense no nothing. The only thing you could probably get to work is a black or a white "picture"

    Facepalm anyone?

    The sensor on the iPod is probably a very cheap, simple sensor. Even an LED can be used to sense light. There's no way you'll be getting any kind of recognizable picture off that.

    It's like saying you can turn an RC car into a Ferrari.
