"Citius, Altius, Fortius" runs the Olympic motto (that's faster, higher, stronger) and, oh dear, this Olympics themed-webcam can just about manage "cheaper, nastier, LEDier." It's in the shape of the five-ring emblem, with a 1.3-megapixel cam in the center ring. The other rings get a glowing LED each. It's $27, USB 1.1, not Mac-compatible and unlike the Lego Olympics models, it bodes ill for other nasty Olympic-themed gizmos yet to surface. [SiteDV via ChipChick]
This will only be useful as a gag prop, seen in the backgound of a comedy filmed 20 years from now, put there to remind people about the kind of junk people bought 20 years ago.
Oh yeah - and fuck the olympics. They try to portray themselves as being above all the politics, but in truth, they're more corrupt than the United Nations.
