Biscotti is an affordable and svelte high-definition video calling system designed for your HDTV in your living room. The device, roughly the same size and shape of the Italian cookie it’s named after, plugs into your HDTV via the included HDMI cable and uses your Wi-Fi network to let you talk to friends and family via your TV. The built-in microphone works up to 20 feet.
Biscotti is one of the few TV video calling products to focus on personal calls, rather than enterprise video conferencing. The device costs $199, but once you pay for it, you get free, unlimited calling that integrates with Google Talk — from the comfort of your couch. The company expects to begin selling it this month.
