New toys are amusing...

Newspaper got new computers last week....the new MAC G5s with the Inter processors...

I walked in on the techie guys setting them up last week, but didn't walk get to play with them until today.

Such fun stuff - the monitors come equipped with a built-in webcam. And the iChat on there has a video IM feature. And the computers are loaded with a Photo Booth software, which is just the web cam software...but oh man. So amusing.

So I discovered it, someone else discovered it, and we were playing with it for a while...

So I tested it out -


This is the normal mode.

And then we discovered the special effects -


Look! We're a comic!


Andy Warhol style!


I'm an angel! I'm flying!

Oh dear. I am going to waste so much time using this on production days. I don't even have to bring my own camera anymore!
