Its been done! The first published case report of the clinical use of a home-made video laryngoscope system, assembled from off the shelf parts ( USB endoscope camera) and a typical Macintosh blade laryngoscope.
Here is the article. Incredible!

    Since march 2013 I am using a USB camera adapted to a laringoscope first, and then I designed a low cost laringoscope with a simple system to fix the camera. I presented a case in april in the Congress of Anesthesiology, and then it was published. It´s a good and cheap opcion, but highly effective.
