Who says that video chats have to be one dimensional? As you move, so you can your webcam. Genius, a peripheral outfit, has just announced a new HD webcam with 360-degree rotation capabilities. The FaceCam 1000 includes the company's CrazyTalk Cam Suite software, shoots 720p and has an 8MP sensor for capturing still images.

 The FaceCam 1000 has a precise manual focus lens to manually control the focus without any blur and take still photos or video from any angle with 360 degree rotation capabilities. The new webcam also comes equipped with an Image Protection Mechanism (IPM) feature for preventing unauthorized outside access. By installing the included driver (Windows only), the IPM device protects the webcam from any outside intruders. The new Webcam also has a built-on universal clip to attach to a notebook, LCD monitor or standalone base and is perfect for Skype, MSN, Yahoo messenger and any instant message communication.
