Here are links to some of the products that are used in this chapter. Please do your own due diligence on these products and the retailers that are identified:
The Logitech C920 is the preferred USB camera for this chapter, particularly if you wish to perform video streaming applications. It is an expensive camera, primarily because of the fact that it contains a H.264 hardware encoder, which takes the workload away from the BeagleBone’s processor.
Two other lower-cost cameras are also tested in the chapter, the Logitech C270 and the Logitech C310. Both of the lower-cost cameras work well for image capture, computer vision, and audio capture applications.
Two USB audio adapters are also tested in this chapter — the low-cost Dynamode USB audio adapter and a Creative USB Sound Blaster audio adapter.
The same Bluetooth adapter that is introduced in Chapter 9 is used again in this chapter for Bluetooth audio — the Kinivo BTD-400 Bluetooth 4.0 adapter.
