I don't think so, since only one app can use the iSight at a time.

I could give it a try with the iMac's built-in iSight and the regular external one at work though if you like.

i guess you could if u have the isight thats built in the iMac, but you would need some long extension cords for it.

UPDATE:

I just tried it yesterday, and it actually does work!
I hooked up our iSight camera to an intel iMac with built-in iSight and you can use one signal in one app and the next app will just use the other video signal.

(I tried this with photobooth & ichat, but I'd imagine other apps will work as well).


So you should be able to spy on your neighbours just fine...

an alternative to buying a huge firewire cable is buying a firewire to ethernet and using a longer ethernet cable, its way cheaper.
