Samsung intros inTouch camera with WiFi at CES 2012

Samsung brought along a new product to CES this year which promises to “bridge the gap” between HDTVs with and without internet. The Samsung inTouch camera sits atop your HDTV and connects via HDMI, bringing Wi-Fi, Skype connectivity, 720p video, and other apps to your set. The focal point here is that not all HDTVs (especially older ones) are internet or WiFi enabled. Samsung is betting on the camera’s WiFi, video and audio features to connect families and friends via the internet in a simple way.

The inTouch camera also comes loaded with apps that overlay right on your TV display such as YouTube, Google News, and other internet-based services. And, a palm-sized QWERTY keyboard gives you control to surf the web on your TV. (Geez, is “surfing” still a cool term to use?)

How much will the inTouch cost? Samsung says the camera will hit stores in March 2012 and retail for $199.99.

At Samsung’s press event in Las Vegas today, the company also announced SMART Evolution — a new line of apps that enhance your television with things such as customized education plans for kids, fitness plans, and linking families. The new apps can also take voice and body commands without use of a remote control.
