Conceptual design of the Photonic Instrument (webcam based entropy source)

Photonic Instrument conceptual design.

The Photonic is built around a webcam and uses multiple types of sensor noise to generate it’s entropy. A Foscam IP camera is located inside a dimly lit integrating sphere (the big ball at the top). The instrument can generate approximately 200kb/s of true entropy by extracting it from multiple JPEG files. Faster than /dev/random. It stands 750mm high and weighs a miniscule 8.4kg.
