This is another no-brainer product idea, as many people have thought about this (perhaps even you), but I wanted to post this idea for the record. There needs to be a webcam/camera based on the sinister HAL 9000 from the Space Odyssey films.
Currently you have to resort to building one yourself. A Google search indicates many talented people have made a PC case-mod or webcam based on HAL 9000.
I designed this with a tilting lens and a telescoping mount, so you don’t have to move it’s large frame around too much. Ideally it would come with a pulsing light and maybe a few phrases* from the film. I’d make it a USB hub too.

*I’m not saying that because I’m a Dave! Maybe a custom name entry option would ensure everyone gets the chills from their PC.
