This eyecam looks very creepy and funny at the same time especially when the eye blinks and looks around the room. Designed to make communications better it is the webcam that gives you full feels as someone is sitting in front of you and watching.
Pre pandemic we had video calls and used them but that was mainly for entertainment purposes or just for connecting with friends or rare business meetings. But post-pandemic, it seems that everything has gone online. Not only connecting with friends and family but all the official meetings or you can say the whole office.
In some things it might have done some good while in others we face the drawbacks. However, communications online through video calls have not remained the same. It lacks reaction, feedback, interest, and a lot more.
So keeping all this in mind, a group of researchers from the Human-Computer Interaction Lab of the University of Saarland in Germany has introduced a human eye-shaped webcam that looks very real.
The aim of the researchers is to strengthen the emotional connection humans experience during conversations. As some of that connection is lost through video calls, they hope to better simulate in-person interaction with a webcam that better simulates the human eye.
Although this eye cam looks very creepy and funny at the same time especially when the eye blinks and looks around the room. It gives you a full feel as someone is sitting in front of you and watching.
The objective of the researchers beyond simulating the appearance of the human eye is to simulate human reactions too. To make it more realistic, it is made to react to subtle changes in the environment such as changes in light, sounds, or nearby movements.
The idea must be a good one and it might help in making communications better but we have to accept that it looks very creepy even in pictures and we can’t say anything about it in real. So if you are more curious then go check it out on their website and buy this one creepy eye cam for your laptop.
