Toys again

A new gadget landed on my desk today. I actually ordered it a month ago, but getting anything done over Christmas is just impossible.

It's a Flip Ultra - a mini videocam. It has 2GB of RAM, enough to hold an hour's video. It's the size of a smartphone, and has two buttons; a "start-stop recording", and a "replay last video" button. I think there could be heaps of applications for these, at least until phone videocams pass them by.

I want to lend it to people so they can try their ideas and see what possibilities it offers. It's purely experimental, but at $325 it's a cheap experiment.
