Use your nokia phone as a wireless spy camera

Now anyone can kick James Bond's ass with this little app. From your computer, and over bluetooth, you can tell your phone to take a picture and send it to you.

In order to get this working just use the "sync and run" to run these two commands on hte pc side: -x "import camera;im = camera.take_photo();'c:\\pic.jpg')" -g 'c:\\pic.jpg' mypic.jpg

have fun!
