Now, the kid's time

After my little experiment wit clay stop motion animation (link), I brought the camera home and showed the process to my kids... My older son wanted to give it a try... And here is his first movie.

Clay stop motion

A colleague from just the neighbor lab found an old webcam, which has no support (driver) for his Windows 7... He asked me to try to find an Windows 7 driver, or some driver which make the cam work for him... As I use a Linux workstation, I've just plugged the camera on an USB port to see what do I get. The camera worked pretty nicely...So we've lauched "Cheese" and grab some pictures of some clay that was laying around... It took less than 5 minutes to make this small animation...

After that, he forgot the windows driver and he lent that camera to me to play with the kids.
