the tool
basically it's a live camera, mounted & focused onto the desk, well lit. magnifying the picture +- x10. the touchscreen interface allows easily taking snapshots (which are available/browseable through web-interface, on the local network at HSBxl http://192.168.42.44)
it's great a great way to read text on pcb's, smd resistors, use as a soldering loupe, document some reverse engineering effort etc.
in case you're interested in working on it: ask a user account to ptr_
 more (sub)pages, documentation etc.
