V-Gear Auto Focus Webcam

V-Gear has just begun offering the Auto Focus Webcam. Designed for intelligence, its sensor automatically recognizes the subject in front of the camera and follows, dynamically tuning the focus and zoom to keep the target both centered and in clear view. The camera additionally ships with software that can be used to actively monitor either recognizable subjects, such as children and pets, or any motion in a given area for the sake of security.

The 1.3-megapixel CCD allows for full-speed videos at 640x480 as well as 15 frames per second videos and still photos at 1280x960; similarly flexible is the multi-purpose clip, which fastens the webcam to notebooks and LCDs but also serves as a desktop stand. V-Gear's camera exports from Britain today for $82. [via Tech Digest]
