Frankencamera is open source, runs on Linux (with pics).

Photo scientists at Stanford University's Computer Graphics Laboratory have conceived of what is probably the world's first open-source camera. Their contraption, dubbed the Frankencamera, constructed from off-the-shelf parts in some cases borrowed from dead cameras (its creators say it's ugly--thus the name) consists of a Nokia N95 mobile phone camera module; a circuit board; a couple of lenses from Canon; and Linux for all the open-source goodness.
