Remote controlled 2-axis webcam with Arduino

This is a little afternoon-project I did today! It's a 2-axis mount for my webcam that allows it to be rotated 180° in each direction from anywhere in the world!
I used 2 cheap servos, random Lego parts and an Arduino Chris gave me last year. I wrote a little Program in java that acts as a server and forwards commands to the microcontroller and a Flash app that sends commands to the Java server, works great :)
If you have Skype and want to try controlling the cam, poke me!
