Do You Use a Console Camera When You Play Games?

via geeksugar — Geek is chic. by geeksugar on 11/7/08

The first time I used a console camera was when my BF brought one home in a Trials of Topoq game bundle, which has you using body movements to direct a ball through a maze. Admittedly, it was the single nerdiest moment in my life, mostly because I’d never used a camera while playing a game before, but more so because the game was totally unlike anything I’d ever seen. Seriously, it’s pretty darn nerdy — just check out this review for proof.

But now that more and more games are incorporating the Playstation Eye or Xbox Vision Camera into gameplay, I’m glad we picked one up when we did. SingStar just wouldn’t be the same without reviewing the snapshots and “Golden Moments” of me and my girls singing at the top of our lungs to Britney, and Little Big Planet wouldn’t feel like home without posting up “Polaroid Stickers” of us all over the game!

Do You Use a Console Camera When You Play Games?

Heck yeah — I use a console cam with a lot of games.
No — I don’t like cameras in general!
Huh? You can use cameras while you play games?
Something else. See my comment below.

Mr. Burns webcam is the king of all webcams

Sure, there are way, way, way too many Simpsons licensed products out there, from t-shirts and lunchboxes to grills and toiletries, but this one seems like a cut above the rest. It’s a webcam shaped like Mr. Burns! How could you go wrong with such a product?

In addition to looking like Mr. Burns sitting at his desk (accompanied by Bobo, his stuffed bear), it’s got a handy clip for hooking on to the top of your monitor. It can take 30fps video at a resolution of 640 x 480 and is, you know, a pretty standard webcam. But it looks like Mr. Burns! Stop trying to resist already!
