Logitech TV Cam HD ($200)
If grandparents and friends don't live in town, be prepared to do plenty of video-chatting once baby arrives — or even to show off your growing belly while pregnant. This month, Logitech launches a new Skype-video-chat camera that attaches to any HDTV to provide high-definition video. The Logitech TV Cam HD has a wide-angle lens so moving tots are captured on camera even if they move from the center view (which doesn't happen with computer and iPad cameras). The camera's four built-in microphones reduce external noise so tots can be heard clearly on the other end. And a built-in ringer lets mom and dad know that someone's calling, even when the TV is off — so grandma's call won't be missed. It's never too early to get in the video-chat routine, and this HD version ensures family and friends will get the best view of you and your tot regardless of how far away they live.
