Infrared ho!

I dismantled my frighteningly-expensive 15 euro webcam, and found that it is highly sensitive down into the near infrared range. I taped a spare R72 infrared filter on the front and got some surprisingly clear and usable images/video.
My next step is to look at the fun and creative things I can do with a webcam, beyond the webstream and time-lapse projects I’ve already blogged.

Star trails over Galway is one possible use. Please, give me your suggestions.
