SCIRC Outdoor Webcam

Device maker digitalXtractions has revealed its SCIRC t1 webcam for outdoor travelers. Unlike notebook-orientedwebcams, the stand-alone SCIRC model is independent of any separate host device or network connection. The 1.3-megapixel camera can send still images or video to the company's own Web hosting service by using built-in support for GPRS and EDGE mobile Internet access, bypassing a computer entirely. Even a battery is sometimes unnecessary, the company says. A rechargeable battery is packed with the camera, but optional 6- and 12-watt solar panels will keep the t1 powered and recharge the battery during idle moments.

The camera ships today for $450, although a subscription to the company's image hosting requires $60 per month. Solar panels are also available now for $150 (6-watt) and $250 (12-watt) each. [Via The Raw Feed]
