How about using an endoscopic penscope with Skype?

Phil from Skype Journal offers one of the cleverest ideas for using Skype I have seen in a long time. Basically, it would involve hooking up a type of digital pen camera known as the 1800Endoscope 1800USBPS Penscope PenCam to act as a Webcam. Once enabled, the device would be able to show finely detailed objects within Skype video sessions. So let’s just say you are selling coins on eBay. Using your Endoscope, you would be able to pan over the surface of the coin, and present it to prospective buyers in a high-resolution that would be real-time rather than a series of high-res stills that simply evoke more questions from your would-be buyer.
