    I believe there's an iSight screensaver too, that shows you what the iSight sees. That could be kind of a fun screensaver / mirror. :)

    There is this one which is pretty cool, only takes a shot when it detects movement

    From the article:
    Um, if this is alpha software, why is it posted all over the internet, especially with no mechanism for bug reporting? To quote Inigo Montoya, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

    It is called "Security" and I got it off these forums from someone who took it out of a developer pre release of Leopard. Now i'm pretty certain it is against forum rules to post it but if you were to ask me another question by PM with an email address to answer that new question.

    Just came across this collection of isight screensaves. There's a youtube video of someone demoing it here.

    SurveillanceSaver doesn't seem to work properly with multiple monitors for me, even if you select 'use main display only'

    And it was pulled from Leopard for good reason. It is incredibly unstable, and will cause certain machines to kernel panic when it loads.

    Fair enough, although not experiencing that on my machine.

    I badly, badly want this screensaver.

    Does someone know where o find it?

    Googling based on the name "Security" is a bit fruitless.. :)
