    When i ordered my bigbox i opted out of the included RPi as I already have too many RPi's around the house and decided to just one of those those. That did mean i missed out on the Pi's camera as well, however I did have an old Microsoft Lifecam sitting around.

    So I whipped up a quick mount for myself. You can see it here. The camera itself can move up and down and side to side so there was no need to include that in the mount. So it's just a solid piece and uses the same mounting holes.

    It looks like there is a coat of glue over the bed.
