A USB webcam for notebooks that has two imaging elements pointing in opposite directions.

Works with any standard video calling client.

Selectable between Front cam/Back cam/Widescreen split-screen/ PIP, all done in the cam's CPU so that it provides a single "standard" 1024 x 768 video stream. Show your caller both your own image, and/or whatver's in front of you; switch between single and composite views at the click of a mouse. No need to fiddle with the camera once you've aimed it.

       So, maybe the back cam could be focused on an HD movie portrayal of the Hindenburg disaster, while the front cam superimposes me into the foreground; then I could send the video clip to my workplace manager as a reason why I will be late today? Not for real, I mean, I'm just saying... uh, bun. [+]

       They don't have this yet?   

       Apparently not.

       Wouldn't the manager be suspicious that your life had suddenly gone monochrome and scratchy?

       [Grogster] you'll get a pink slip (or P45), bearing the annotation "Oh, the humanity!"

       Perhaps I should hold up a sign that says, "...it wasn't me..." (ala favorite line of the main character in the movie RocketMan)
