If you spend a lot of time doing Skype video chats, here's your chance to do them in full 1080p HD. As long as you have good lighting and a relatively new PC running Windows 7 (the c920 isn't Mac compatible), your chat partners will see you in all your HD glory (it's up to you whether or not that's a good thing). If you're not a Skype user, the c920 will work with other video chat services, including Google and Yahoo, at 720p.
How It Stacks Up

PlayStation Camera for PlayStation 4

The gadget also gains Motion Zones for specific areas of your house.
