That's interesting, how are the current iSights attached?
(I haven't got one)

From what i can see, the iSight just kind of rests on top of the screen. If you look at the iSight page (http://www.apple.com/isight/) you can see a couple of images, showing how it works.

I like this alternative way though. It's not quite as pretty, but seems a lot more secure than simply relying on gravity. Nice idea, and very cheap.

Interesting, but not exactly elegant. I'm hoping that when they come out with the new LCD displays that there will be a mount that comes with them.

I'm looking forward to getting an iSight when I get my new computer.

I wouldn't mind a tripod for iSight, maybe to be hopeful you could motorize it :D

Perhaps create the ultimate webcam...

And then develop some software to allow it to be remotely controlled.....

Can you just imagine the possibilities? :D

If Lego would just get their friggin act together with a commercial port of their robotic software you could make one easily. That would be so cool!

iChat SpyCam! :D

Nice idea, but if you get the iMac iSight mount included with it, turn it the other way around...voila, you have a mount for your Studio Display.

I bet you someone already has a working "iSpy" of some sort using the iSight. What hackers do in their free time sometimes blows me away.

Is anyone working on an iPolaroid? :D
