Comment $20 is cheap! (Score 3, Interesting) 161

Why on earth are you whining about a $20 price? People spend plenty more on screensavers.

Totally worth it, and negligible when considering the cost of the rest of the hardware.

I expect that an improvement can be done with webcam tracking, obviously for one viewer at a time.

It's a real shame that the patent system has been able to be manipulated so effectively, to siphon hard-earned money from real companies, and real inventors, into the pockets of these parasites. They're nothing but a drain on everyone. Lemelson's legacy lives on!

I'm glad this is getting some attention, though.
