TelyHD lets you do your Skype video chats on your HDTV instead of your computer. While other TV webcams are available for less than half of TelyHD's $250 price tag (if you have a compatible TV), the Tely's easy setup and compatibility with any TV with an HDMI input may make it a worthwhile purchase for families looking for a quick and easy way to bring their chats into the living room.

If Skyping from your computer feels too formal, try it from the couch. And if Mr. Spacely calls, you don’t have to answer.

As TelyHD improves so does the likelihood that more folks will be making video calls in the living room. Seeing will be believing.
