Have you seen seenly.com? It is a flash site which prompts the user to allow the flash plug-in to access the user's webcam. Then the user can snap a photo of himself/herself which is then saved on the web.

This would be a great addition to any social networking or event management web app.

Any flash experts out there done something like this with flash in their web apps?

I didn't know Flash/Flex can access a webcam. I wonder what other devices it can access...

Thank you for the link Truman.

I wish I had seen your presentation! Thanks for the Flex tutorial, Dan.

If anyone is interested, I found docs on the Camera and BitmapData classes:

Seenly is a great example of this flash feature. I used a webcam example for a recent flex demo. Access to devices is one of the major advantages Flex has over Silverlight. This page has an excellent simple tutorial demonstrating camera access from Flex.
