Thought this might be of interest.

A camera which can be used for gaming!

We've seen bargain-basement brands toss gaming functionality into a non-gaming device in a somewhat futile attempt to polish up a product before, and apparently, DXG has caught the consolidation bug too. The DXG-589V handheld camera / camcorder mimics the design of Sanyo's Xacti HD2, but rather than packing excellent resolution and HD capturing abilities, this rendition scales back on the goods that matter in order to reach a rock bottom price. Users will find a three-inch LTPS monitor, five-megapixel CMOS sensor, MP3 support, a rechargeable Li-ion cell, SD card slot, and direct recording abilities from an external video source, but you'll only be grabbing MPEG4 footage at 640 x 480 resolution. Additionally, you'll discover 20 less-than-enthralling games built right in, and with the PlayStation-esque control pad, Sony fans shouldn't have any problem getting the buttons down. Of course, the stripped-down nature of this here device allows DXG to shed a few dollars off the purchase price, but we'd be seriously cautious about dropping even $199.99 for this one.

If it can be used for gaming then it could be used for learning activities (in addition to camera based learning activities).
