This new HP monitor has a pop-up camera that slowly rises to look at you

The HP Envy 34 is the first curved monitor that's certified by Skype for business.

If you mean business, the HP Envy 34 Curved display is for you. Not only is the $899 ultrawide 34-inch panel a great canvas for multitasking, it's the first certified Skype for Business curved monitor, meaning it's built to have the best Skype call experience possible. (UK and Australian availability has yet to be announced, but the US price converts to around £710 or AU$1,200.)

Since the monitor's stylishly narrow bezels don't allow much space for a camera, it has a pop-up camera that's sneakily hidden on the top of the monitor. Simply press the center and it slowly rises on its own. If you're not using the camera (or worried about someone hacking into your monitor's webcam) you can easily tuck it away.

A wide speaker on the bottom of the monitor for loud and clear conference calls.

HP also unveiled the more modest HP Envy 24. The 24-inch monitor has supremely thin bezels that elegantly maximize screen space, despite it being on the small side for a monitor. (Especially when compared to the huge, ultrawide HP Envy 34 above.)

It has a USB-C port that lets you output video from a PC or laptop, or the port can be used to charge a phone or tablet.

Starting at $279, it's expected to be available on December 12 on HP's online store and at select retailers in January 2017. Again, UK and Australian prices and dates are TBA, but the US price converts to about £220 or AU$375.
