What I won was a pink Flip Video Ultra, a cute little handheld video camera that shoots 2 hours of 640×480 video onto solid state memory. You then get to transfer it over to your computer by activating the flick-knife like USB connector.
I’ve not had chance to play much with it yet, but I’ve posted a couple of test videos onto Flickr. So far it seems pretty decent – it’s nice and responsive to changes in light, so that makes me happy. It’s also pretty sturdy, and feels like you could chuck it around a fair bit and it would be okay, which is good because I tend to throw things about a bit.
Thanks to the Moo chaps for choosing me as the winner, and I look forward to seeing what they do with the API going forwards.
