Maybe it’s the word “communicator” in the name of the Polycom Skype Communicator, but it reminds me of a certain tool that Captain Kirk used on the original Star Trek series, except the flap is on the other side.
This Communicator enables the user to hold hands-free conversations, using high-quality microphones that can eliminate feedback and echoes. It hooks up to your computer via USB, and is perfect for Skype conversations or as an external speaker. You should be able to get the Polycom C100S USB Speakerphone for about $112.

The phone connects to a PC over a USB connection and utilizes VoIP for communications on that end.
