Both drivers act as "webcams". Robert's version exports the local frame buffer 
through USB, making the "webcam" capture what's displayed on the device. My 
version exposes a V4L2 interface to userspace, allowing an application on the 
device to send whatever it wants over USB (for instance frames captured from a 
sensor, making the device a real camera).
