As if today was not historic enough, while I was busy preparing the first ever ev3dev Raspberry Pi release, fellow ev3dev contributor @sharived was busy launching a KickStarter page for RoboSnap - the first ever product built for ev3dev.

RoboSnap is an easy-to-use, kid-friendly USB camera made especially to work with LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 (using ev3dev of course) as well as Raspberry Pi and other platforms.

Beyond the camera itself, the project is bringing Snap! and Scratch (visual programming languages) to ev3dev, so this is a project worth supporting even if you are not interested in the camera.
