I see that Google+ allows people to get together (up to nine at a time) for a shared video/webcam chat. youtu.be/QN38vHZjWXw
I hear that some people are already using it for RPGs.
Would be interesting to try it for wargaming, but seems you would need multiple webcams, and I'm not sure from the introductory video how Hangout lets you switch from camera to camera

We have been using a webcam for a few years now for RPGing with distant players who used to be in the group. Success has been ok, but could be a lot better.
We will definitely be checking this out instead.

Anybody know of an affordable source for wireless "button hole" cameras? They should look OK glued to the chest of either 54mm plastic figs or as a Battlemech component.
