Correct me if I’m wrong, but the bevel webcam – you know the one built-in to all Macbooks – was added such that you don’t have to carry around yet another piece of hardware from place to place.  Well, apparently the Ecamm Network ain’t buying this, because they’re set to launch a wireless webcam, the BT-1.  It connects to your laptop, or desktop via Bluetooth, streams h.264 encoded 640×480 video at up to 30 feet and offers a 4 hour battery life. It may not be the best Logitech webcam, but it’s certainly a change in the current tech.

The BT-1 is due to ship in March and will cost $149, a price most folks probably aren’t willing to pay.  Plus given Apple’s latest patent, we might just see an iPhone app that enables streaming from the device itself.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
