Hot on the heels of yesterday’s post about outfitting a school newspaper (or any organization really) with the capability to broadcast video live from anywhere, it dawned on me: Someone could do the same thing for 1/10th the price. The caveat: it wouldn’t be truly live.

The solution will be good for most people, though. It comes in the form of the exploding Flip Video camera. The picture explains the camera better than I ever could.

And these things are a steal. The most expensive one which allows for 60 minutes of recording time only costs $180. I got one myself and I’m loving it.
