Developed by Far&Easy, Minutesight is an iOS app which connects its users and allows for free virtual tours around the world.

Minutesight enables peer-to-peer HD video streaming between two geolocated iPhones. Any app user can request one minute of live video from anyone else on the app. To call, just zoom in on the map, where the dots represent Minutesight users, press the call button and all app users in the selected area will receive a notification. 

Whoever accepts the notification first films around themselves for a minute, following the direction arrows which appear on their screen. The caller activates these directional arrows with a virtual joystick according to the view they wish to see.

At the end of the minute, the filmer gains one point and the caller will have spent one point. You'll receive 20 points when you first install Minutesight on an iPhone, each point allowing you to receive a minute of video.

Minutesight has been awarded the 2019 French Tech Grant



Confidentiality

Minutesight geolocates mobile users. In order to respect their privacy protection requirements, users are always anonymous to each other and to Minutesight. In addition, Minutesight allows you to create as many privacy zones as you need (home, office, etc.) in which users disappear from the map and receive no notifications.

Risks and challenges

Minutesight is a free public interest project that allows anyone to access live images of a chosen location. Each user, if available, can become an interactive webcam for any other user.
Minutesight's value increases with the number of users. The larger the community, the greater the choice of visits.
The challenge is to create a community large enough to grow naturally. We need resources to finalise the iOS version, develop the Android version and maintain servers. But we also need users for the available beta.
Download it here: https://testflight.apple.com/join/Rf9jZ5Ru, use it and give us your feedback on Minutesight.com. We will take your opinions into account and send you priority updates. And if you like the idea, tell your friends.
