It has a built-in rechargeable battery that provides four hour performance between charges and its wireless range is 30 feet -- an extender is promised soon that would boost the range to 200 feet. The webcam works with applications like iChat, Skype, QuickTime Pro Player and Broadcaster, YouTube and Photo Booth.

The BT-1 uses Bluetoth 2.0+EDR, has a fixed focus lens that works from 10 inches out to infinity and provides 15 frames/sec performance. It charges via a mini-USB connection.

Ecamm's BT-1 arrives with a mini-tripod and a USB charging cable. It is a Mac-only product that requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher and Bluetooth 20.+EDR. It is now shipping to the US for $150, with international orders coming soon.
