Software to take Picture via iSight after some interval

I'd like to periodically take pictures of myself while I work. Is there a time lapse application that works on Mac OS X that (unobtrusively) takes photos and say, saves them into a folder?

I don't think this is an exact duplicate; I wasn't looking for software that took a picture after an interval, but repeatedly, as well. Which is to say, not just a delay, but actual time lapse. –  aresnick Sep 3 '11 at 17:21

ImageSnap recently added the ability to take a picture at a specified interval.

You could then stitch the images together into a movie using 'mencoder' or a number of other utilities.

I'm only promoting it in the sense that it would solve this question and the linked duplicate. I'm not affiliated with the development of the linked FOSS tool. In the future I'll make clear the lack of affiliation. –  fracai Sep 2 '11 at 18:10
