Iris 1.0.1 tool for iSight
MildMannered Industries has premiered the first version of Iris, a program that expands the abilities of iSights and other webcams. Aside from permitting snapshots, it can also be used to record movies, including timelapse movies stretched over extended periods of time. Video can be broadcast online, and files can be quickly uploaded to Flickr or exported to iPods, the Apple TV or the iPhone. Users concerned with security can configure a camera to detect motion, sending e-mail alerts as necessary. Iris is a Universal Binary that requires Mac OS 10.4; its $30 price covers unlimited personal use or a single business computer.
