Finally, a Webcam that doesn't look creepy

'Bubble Heads' look like friendly little guys


For awhile we thought the majority of Webcams on the market were being designed by aliens. That was the only explanation we had for the inordinate number of models we've seen that have menacing or downright scary looks. (Except the ones that look like blenders, of course.)

The "Bubble Head" concept could change all that, as their friendly one-eyed faces show, if some manufacturer would just show a little guts and make them on a mass retail scale. The cams are made of polyurethane to survive falls from wherever they're perched, including the ladder that comes with them, and they double as LED clocks when not in use.

We suspect that fellow Craver Caroline "Shiver Me Timbers" McCarthy will want one, so we'll make this open request in advance: Please include a pirate version.
