It can be used for video chat, delivering 640x480 video over VGA at 30 frames per second, and is capable of taking still pictures at 1.3 megapixels, namely gamer pictures. It is also used in select games for face-mapping in character creation modes, such as Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas, and Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise includes a feature in which you can scan cards to import pinatas and items into your garden.
