HD Videoconferencing Lets Hollywood Bigwigs Judge You From Afar

While most webcams are stuck delivering choppy video, the LifeSize camera's cyclops eye delivers high-def 1,280 x 720 resolution feeds. Used mainly in the film industry, the camera lets casting agents interview wannabe actors and models without the agents ever having to leave their smug offices. Data is sent instantaneously through an IP address from one location to the other making it easier than ever for them to reject you. No word on its consumer availability, though the idea of videoconferencing in HD isn't too appealing, especially if it means having to shower before each conference.
