I can't really picture how this module is going to work for actual calling (and I don't have an Apple TV to try it out on), but if it refines into a true Skype client, and the Take 2 update doesn't completely nuke the Apple TV development scene, and Skype gets past its current security worries, this could be a very interesting path towards our videophone-enabled, jet-pack-wearing future.
Update: Matt comments that Brandon has a demo video up on his site, which is both technically interesting and slightly hilarious (watch for the test call where he tries to put the moves on Echo123, that faceless e-babe).
