That's cool. The iSight's "other" purpose

With my new job I got a company laptop. This evening I was working on it and happened to keep adjusting the angle of the screen. Every time I did I the screen dimmed. I started moving my hand around the screen and I found a really cool feature.

The Macbook Pro, at least with Snow Leopard installed, dims the screen brightness according to the amount of light sensed by the iSight camera. So when you turn off the lights, the screen automatically dims so that it's not too bright.

That's really cool.
