Astak intros Mole computer camera
Astak has announced the release of a standalone computer camera, the Mole on Wednesday. The wireless Wi-Fi camera can upload videos to YouTube, detect motion and alert users via Twitter or e-mail, and let them see what it sees via an iPhone or web browser. It can also record what it sees onto SD cards.
The camera can be set up easily for networking by owners, and allows up to five users to view what it sees across most modern web browsers. Via the web-based interface, users can remotely pan and tilt the Mole to get a complete view of the environment it's in. A two-way microphone lets users have conversations with other online users, and 15 LEDs allow for night-time recording. Internet access comes to the camera through either Ethernet or Wi-Fi
The Mole will ship early in November, priced at $299.
