Some Weekend Fun – A New HP Elite Autofocus Webcam

I have a new toy to try out for a little while – and I’ll be playing with it some this weekend!  Maybe we should have a ‘virtual’ reader meeting via U-Stream or something – maybe try out a new service so people can get in on the web-cam action at the same time!!  Any suggestions??

Check out the specs for the  HP webcam after the break (One of them is a 12 MP (software assisted) still capture!!):
