iContact webcam

Less background. More light. Easy eye contact.

Eye contact helps you focus, make an emotional connection, and even helps with retaining information.  

Traditional webcams are above the screen, so looking at someone and making eye contact at the same time isn’t possible.

iContact places the camera onto the screen for effortless eye contact. And, the iContact Camera features a close-up lens to show more of you and less of your background.

The lighting and background are the same for both images. Only the camera has changed.

Available for preorder on Idiegogo InDemand. 

A focus on you

With better light sensitivity and higher resolution than most built-in cameras, iContact captures a bright, crisp image. And its portrait-style lens automatically puts the focus on you, cropping out distracting background details. So you always look your best.

Plug and play

The iContact camera easily adjusts to most computer screens and does not require additional software. Just plug into your Mac or PC and connect using your favorite video calling apps.

 

Better communication for everyone

Founders story

For most of my career, I’ve been a video director. With video, it’s essential to capture nonverbal communication—it keeps us mentally and emotionally engaged in the story.

With the camera above the screen, however, there’s a disconnect for most visual communication cues. When you think you’re making eye contact, it appears you’re looking down. If you look into the camera, you seem to be making eye contact, but really your not seeing them at all. This makes the whole call feel unnatural. As your eyes roam from camera to person, it’s hard to focus, and you end up looking nervous and distracted. The experience was terrible, and I wanted to fix it.

The solution to maintaining focus and eye contact is simple: move the camera down to align with the person on screen. The challenge was making that idea a reality. Hundreds of prototypes, a year of testing, and one patent later, that solution is finally ready to share. Please support this campaign. It’s the easiest way to improve online communication.
