BT-1 Wireless Webcam

Ecamm Network has announced the BT-1, a Bluetooth webcam for Mac. The device offers streaming H.264 video at 640 by 480 pixel resolution and 48kHz AAC stereo audio. An included flexible mini-tripod allows users to mount or position the camera for a variety of applications. The internal battery is claimed to offer roughly four hours of usage and the package comes with a USB charging cable. The BT-1 is said to work with applications such as iChat and Skype.

The BT-1 will debut at the Macworld conference in January and is scheduled to ship sometime in March. The device requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. Customers can pre-order the webcam for $150.

    Ugly, but fuctional

    The specs make it sound great, but the appearance is really ugly. This is defiantly not Apple like.

    low

    It appears that this is only meant to sit on the desk. Why would anyone want a camera at that low angle -- for the nostril shot? It should clip onto the monitor -- and even there hang down a few inches to get nearer the iChat window. For all those folks who've been waiting for an Apple display with built-in iSight (and apparently will never receive one for older Macs) we have to look for solutions like this.
