Here's what I want: Two *identical* USB webcams for a machine vision project, under $25 including shipping. Color or monochrome is okay, and they should be usable on a Mac, perhaps with Ecamm's iChatUSB software, which is compatible with this list of cameras. Any suggestions of where to look?

Compatibility may be an issue but there are some cheapies with free shipping at DealExtreme. I'm partial to the Diamond cam. There's a ton of other cheap stuff just ripe for re-purposing on that site too.
