iSight

Made it out to the Apple Store today and tried out an iSight camera with the new iChat AV. Real time audio/video confererencing. Nothing new there, but the incredible part is the simplicity of adding it to iChat. The quality of the video at full screen mode was also really impressive. The trick is, you have to know someone else who has one, but it could be rather handy for telecommuting. Also, it’s free to talk to someone anywhere in the world. Long distance companies are going to love this if the technology finally catches on.

The actual iSight camera itself was a bit larger than I imagined. I suppose that’s the tradeoff for the great video quality.
