Webcams are becoming an integral part of the online social experience. Users can now have conversations, share video blog entries, and even stream live from anywhere using only a webcam, an internet connection, and a laptop.
Most webcams aren’t exactly ascetically pleasing. They all seem to resemble the HAL computer from Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey a little to closely. Many people feel intimidated from the style of the big-eye webcam. The 2 x 2 Duplo Lego Webcam from Etsy adds a touch of geeky familiarity which is both pleasing to the eye, and perhaps less intimidating to the shy exhibitionist.
The Lego Webcam comes attached to a 50 cm gooseneck cable for easily adjusted perspective, height, and an all-around more efficient webcamming experience. The camera which comes with the cam offers a 640×480 pixel video at 30 frames per second.
Compatible with USB 1.1 and 2.0, the Lego Webcam comes in your choice of 7 colors: pink, red, green, blue, black, yellow, or orange and is available from Etsy for $79. Any lifestreamer or Lego brick architect would be foolish not to grab one of these.
