Microsoft released the LifeCam VX-5000, a webcam with a bendable attachment base that molds to virtually any surface - from a notebook to a desktop.

For personalized flair, the LifeCam VX-5000 features a brightly colored ring around the front of the webcam in the colors Cool Blue, Lucky Green and Fire Red. The LifeCam VX-5000 also features MSN Photo Swap, a special feature that lets consumers share digital photos in midvideo conversation and see real-time reactions as both callers view the pictures.

The VX-5000 comes with Windows Live optimizations and the latest version of LifeCam software, making it easier for users to experience a video call. Key features and benefits include the following:
