Here’s something rather snazzy! I’m a massive fan of anything that means I’m not tired to a desk by a cable. Logitech have announced a brand new Wireless HD Webcam which means you can now walk around the house with the device rather than using extension cables or carrying your laptop around trying to position it to give people a tour of your new home.

Key features:
  • Fold-and-go, tripod-ready design so you can carry and use anywhere
  • 360-degree swivel rotation
  • Make video calls in HD 720p on Skype, FaceTime, LogitechVid and Windows Live Messenger
  • 8-megapixel images
  • One-click HD video and photo upload to Facebook, YouTube and Twitter
  • Built-in autofocus and microphone

Looks like the RRP will be around £69.99 and we should have a demo coming soon for me to give you a good test of it so watch this space.
