Brian Sawyer at Hackszine shows us some cool tips on how we can optimize our iChat to send one-way video that’s perfect to teach crafting techniques such as knitting.

Brian says:

For example, crafts like knitting are notoriously hard to teach without visual cues, and even the most detailed books often suffer from their lack of moving pictures. When I learned to knit, I used books as a crutch, but actually learning required sitting next to my mother-in-law to see how it was done. Even now, when I hit a roadblock with a new technique, I need to wait till the next time we’re together. But if we had a feature like this, we likely wouldn’t have to wait. I could just “look over her shoulder” as she described what she was doing.

Check out Brian’s video as well as technical tips on how you can do this too. Link.
