EYECAM: A Human Eye Webcam That Looks Back at You [Video]

Eye contact. Human eyes are crucial for communication. Through the look, we can perceive happiness, anger, boredom or fatigue. The eyes move around when someone is curious and took straight to maintain focus. We are familiar with these interaction cues influencing our social behavior. While webcams share the same purpose as the human eye —seeing—, they are not expressive, not conveying and transmitting affect as the human eyes do. Eyecam brings back the affective aspects of the eye in the camera. Eyecam is a webcam shaped like a human eye. It can see, blink, look around and observe you.
