Boynq Alibi Review – Cute and Fun Webcam-Speaker Combo

Boynq Alibi Review – Cute and Fun Webcam-Speaker Combo

When they can fit a webcam into a milimeter-depth notch in a laptop's screen bezel, a manufacturer would have to be offering something pretty impressive to sell one standing eight inches tall on your desktop. But Boynq are positioning their Alibi unit as something more interesting than a simple way to video chat with your parents; it may be a 1.3-megapixel webcam with integrated speakers and microphone, but what you're really paying for is the design. Like some monstrous limb cinched in with the brushed-finish silver volume band, the Alibi's selling point is its pop-up, twist & rotate camera. SlashGear braved vague and unsettling memories of War of the Worlds and put the Alibi through its very purple paces.

This gadget single-handedly makes me weep for the human race. Yes, I saw Balls of Fury, yes it was absolutely hilarious, but I think a ping pong webcam is just too, too far.

CES 2008: Toshiba demo Spurs Engine – PS3 Cell CPU in Qosmio laptop

Toshiba have taken the Cell CPU usually found in a Sony PS3 and put it into a concept Qosmio G45 laptop, giving the machine a total of six processors (the original Core 2 Duo is still there, plus the four 1.5GHz synergistic processing elements in the Cell) and the ability to perform high-complexity visual tasks in real-time.  The system is then able to upscale 640 x 480 video to 1080p via heavy-duty image processing in a mere three hours (whereas a normal Core 2 Duo machine would take 24), use the onboard webcam to recognise and translate hand gestures to control the laptop, and even trawl through stacks of video identifying common faces and building playlists from recurring actors.

CES 2008: WowWee unveil Rovio web-controlled webcam & creepy Mr Personality robot

Set to be bothering the ankles of CES explorers this year are two new 'bots from the WowWee stables: the slick, beetle-like Rovio and the frankly disturbing Mr Personality (shown after the cut).  The Rovio, capable of being controlled from any internet-enabled device thanks to its WiFi b/g hookup, has a built-in movable VGA webcam complete with sound, and can stream live footage across the network to wherever you are in the world.

Ustream links families for the holidays

Nothing is more important than family during the holidays. It’s often a time of depression for people who are without someone dear to them. We all need hope, family and love around this time and that includes the soldiers who are out there fighting and can’t be with us at home.

Alright, so I wrote up the Steampunk webcam yesterday and thought I had found the webcam of my dreams. I however, had a bit of a change of heart, I've decided I'd much rather have a webcam that can shoot at people.

The Steampunk Anglepoise Webcam

The Steampunk Anglepoise Webcam

I always enjoy admiring anything steampunk, however, the price of such items is more than most of us can afford. This webcam is different enough to set it apart from the usual boring types and is affordable enough for anyone to snag.

The webcam features driverless installation and can take 1.3 megapixel pictures direct from the cam. It runs at a resolution of up to 640x480 pixels at 30fps.
