This is not your ordinary webcam. The ANEO ANWC0804 comes with three interactive games: Kungfu, Super Knight, and Funny Stair. The little guy is about 90 x 44 x 40mm and weighs 54g with a manual focus range of 5cm to infinity, a 24-bit RGB format, and a USB 1.1/2.0 interface. While the camera supports both Windows and Mac, the games will only work with MS. Brando claims that they are simplified for the kids, but we know that sometimes they are better at these things than adults. You can have your own ANEO for $33.00.

While this is referred to as the Lovely Little Yellow Bear Spycam, we know in our hearts it is a faux Pooh. The 350K-pixel webcam is 3.86 x 4.65 x 6.89-inches and weighs 7.05 oz., and plugs into your USB port. We don’t know many spies that wouldn’t note the cord coming out of its backside. It carries a price of $12.01. Buy at least 3 and save a couple of dollars. That way you can put the money towards an Eeyore microphone.

If you live in Japan, you can now check in on your home, control your appliances, and even lock your doors while in your car with Panasonic’s Strada F-Class. The device has a touchscreen with icons that say things such as “turn off the light.” Introduced this week, the Strada also works as GPS. Of course, you have to have a webcam and netlinking system. With a $3,400.00 price you could always get a couple of timers to do the same thing. Look for it to hit the market this June.

Ipevo was generous enough to lend us one of their movable PoV cams that we first told you about it back in December. The $39.99 priced camera came intact with a CD, mounting pieces that are mostly easy to attach, and almost everything we needed to test it out. Unfortunately, the extended instructions were on the CD, so it was a back and forth effort. Our full review after the jump.

There is no better way to spend a weekend than by playing with electronic toys. The MSN Missile Launcher/Webcam is no exception. Firebox was kind enough to allow us to get our hands on one. It comes with software that makes it really simple to load and takes only a few seconds. With a toy like this, it is easy to get addicted. We only wish we had two for all out virtual/real warfare. Read our full review and see a short video demo after the jump.
(Thanks, Jen and Kent)

After you tire of your USB Missile Launcher, or if you want to one-up friends who have one, we suggest the Webcam Missile Launcher. Hook it up to MSN Instant Messenger via USB and an on-screen menu helps you to rotate, tilt and fire away. With a range of 10 ft., if you get two, you can use the opposition’s to shoot her/him. The 5 x 7 1/2 x 4 1/4-inch mini-weapon has such sound effects as “boing” and “whoosh” and comes with 3 missiles and a 4 ft. USB cable. Newly arrived, you can get one for $59.95.

What “Simpsons” fan doesn’t love the loathsome, evil—and hysterically funny—Mr. Burns? But it’s another thing to actually have him watch over you 24/7 in the form of a webcam, which is why we think this gadget is for the uber-fan only. The camera’s resolution is 640x480, capturing 30 frames per second. It also comes with two different sized clips, so you can use it on any monitor. The cam plays well with SKYPE, IM software from MSN, Yahoo and AIM and everything from Windows 98 through Vista. But the piece de resistance? Sitting on Mr. Burns’ desk is none other than…Bobo! He being Mr. Burns’ beloved childhood teddy bear, and the subject of one of the best Simpsons episodes ever. Available for $50 USD.
Green is Good. Definitely the newest buzzword, there is a trend now to create gadgets that are not only functional but good for the environment. Some companies rely on guilt, but others seem to believe in what they sell. Created in Vietnam and designed in Belgium, United Pepper’s accessories are made of paperboard, cotton, and Kapok, a natural tree-fibre. Their Oscar USB 2.0 hub and LILI 1.3 Mpixel webcam are completely recycleable, energy efficient, and composed of fairtraded goods. It doesn’t hurt that they are cute, either. Find them for £20 (~$40.00) and £30 (~$60.00) respectively on the green site.
