Varioptic Liquid Lenses Debut in Webcams

We're more than a little excited over the prospect of inexpensive liquid lenses, even if Varioptic's first outing with the technology isn't all that mind-blowing. The initial devices on the market will be the S1300 and S2000 AF SnakeCams (yeah, they're pretty typical webcams featuring 1.3MP and 2MP resolutions). But starting at just $20 per unit, the technology is every bit as inexpensive as Varioptic originally promised. Here's hoping it's just as good, too. [Varioptic via Engadget]
