Huckleberry Uses Mirror to Make MacBook More Versatile

Here's an idea straight out of a prison movie: the Huckleberry, which can turn your MacBook into a video camera. You know how prisoners use hand mirrors to see people in the next cell? That's how the Huckleberry works, using a small mirror to let you use that little iSight camera on the MacBook as a forward-facing video camera, too. Developed by Charlie Dancey with a little help from Mungai Mirrors Ltd., it'll be introduced at Mac Expo on October 26 in London, selling for 14.95 (about $28).

Neat idea. Now if they could just make it quickly swing out of the way using electronic switching, you could use it to video record interviews between you and someone sitting in front of you.

neat idea. yeah, but my acer notebook has a camera that swivels 270 degrees- even though its not anywhere near the image quality of the built in isights, i can still creep on the people across the table from me without an awkward looking makeup mirror clipped on my laptop.
