When I was a kid, I remember seeing a future where everyone had a video phone in their house. In many ways, that prediction has finally become available to anyone with a decent Internet connection and a Webcam. To project the best image, you need a good Webcam and a fast connection. While there are numerous services that offer video calls, my favorite is Skype. It is completely free if you are calling another Skype user.
Now that we have the software in place, we need a good Webcam. One of the best choices is the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910. It can deliver full 1080p video if your connection is fast enough to deliver that much data over the Internet. Of course it can also deliver a lower resolution if your Web connection isn’t as fast. I have to admit that it is really cool to have a video conversation with someone on the other side of the world without spending a penny. In this case, it will cost you a little under $70 for the Webcam and that is a small price to pay.
