WWIGO: Use Camera Phone as Wireless Webcam for Free

wwigo vs webcam skype youtubeNeed a webcam? Why shell out cash when you can use your camera phone as a webcam for free. Motvik has recently released a product called WWIGO (Webcam Wherever You Go), it turns your Bluetooth enabled camera phone into a wireless webcam which can be used with any application on your computer. 

WWIGO is a free application and supports all Nokia S60 v2.0 and v3.0 devices. There are plenty of benefits in using WWIGO over conventional webcams: Modern camera phones are equipped with better lens and higher resolution cameras, so your camera phone will behave as high quality webcam. It works wirelessly over Bluetooth, giving you the flexibility to move your camera phone. WWIGO is a two piece application, one part is installed in your computer and second part is installed in your mobile.

WWIGO is a free alternative to commercially available Mobiola Web Camera. I’ve tried both and I found WWIGO cleaner and simpler to use. You’ll need a S60 v2.0 or v3.0 handset and Windows (XP and Vista) along with Bluetooth adapter.

    Looks like I can bid good bye to my crappy Logitech Quickcam. Nokia N70 has a better cam. But, won’t this make video chat slower ?

    There is also Mobiola Web Camera which can turn your Symbian, J2ME, Windows Mobile phone into a wireless webcam for laptop.

    Speaking of Bluetooth webcams, do you know about any bluetooth microphone ? I mean, my mic is broken. It would be great if I can use my phone as a microphone.
