Though you can easily purchase a PSP camera from game and electronic accessory stores, you may wish to create a camera from old items you have laying around. Since the PSP contains a working USB port, you can connect a webcam to the PSP using a USB adaptor. You must choose a webcam with a low power requirement. Since you need to install webcam drivers onto the PSP, your PSP must be hacked for the process to work.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Webcam
  • USB adaptor for webcam
  • Hacked PSP
