PC owners love Logitech for their gaming-focused keyboards, mice and badass racing wheels, but the company's no one-trick pony. For those of you who are more prone to chatting up strangers rather blowing them to jelly with a BFG9000, Logitech's newly unveiled C615 HD webcam might be right up your alley. Sure, its fold-and-swivel design makes it look like the head of our future robotic overlords, complete with a cold, unblinking eye (Seriously, just look at it), but it also makes it ideal for Skyping on the run.
Love it or hate it, the webcam's design is definitely unique. Closed, it looks kind of like a carrying case for glasses, but like a Tootsie pop, the good stuff's on the inside. Opening and unfolding the C615 reveals several flexible joints and the camera itself, which spins around in a full 360 degree circle. The mobility lets you shoot videos with the C615 that other models simply couldn't capture.
Tech-wise, the C615's capable of full-blown 1080p videos, although video chat drops the rate down to 720p. You can snap 8-megapixel still shots with this bad boy, and the device supports all the major video chat/IM services out there. Logitech built on the travel-friendly design of the C615 with the inclusion of a simple plug-and-play USB connection. You'll be able to bring the webcam to your family reunion and easily connect it to your Grandmother's eMachine, in other words.
