I ordered this cool little USB endoscope camera, but the cord does not look like any type of USB I have ever seen. I would eventually like to make this act like a webcam, so does that make a difference? It looks like this:

The back is just flat. I tried plugging in an Arduino RedBot cord because I had one lying around, it doesn't fit.
