Get a webcam on your clunky old mobile phone

This is way too cool for school: a webcam widget for your mobile phone that is (a) free; and (b) will even work on your clunky old MIDP1 phone.

I've always thought webcams were a bit pointless on a desktop browser, where so much more information can be conveyed on the big screen by other means - graphs, copy, etc. But on the small screen of the mobile phone, when you only have a second to glance at the screen, what better way to get the message across than with a webcam?

This bluepulse widget only does traffic webcams, but I'm hoping another one of our enthusiast developers might take a crack at one for surfcams - now *that* is a killer app!
