This webcam is actually a PC but you should still put tape over it

At first glance the TVPRO HD6 looks like your standard webcam from 2004, but it's actually a tiny PC complete with a full array of ports and even smaller stereo speakers. The TVPRO HD6 runs on an Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core Bay Trail processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage which can be expanded with a microSD card. Some more specs:

  • 2 USB 2.0 ports, 2 HDMI outputs, 1 Ethernet port, microSD card
  • Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11b/g/n/ Wi-Fi
  • Windows 10

Of course if it looks like a webcam it's probably meant for video conferences, and it does come with a 1080p camera. But as we've all learned from Mark Zuckerberg this week, you should definitely tape over it, because hackers. If you want to get your hands on this very tiny PC, it's being sold on AliExpress (and shipping from China) for $146.
