Many of us have seen colleagues with a piece of tape or a Post-it covering their webcams on their laptops. You may find it ridiculous or wonder if they've gone crazy, but recent news about conspiracies and spying prove them right: the hardware on our desktops can be used against us.
There is only two ways to avoid this:
- Don't use a computer, or...
1. What is TAPATUCAM ?
TAPATUCAM is not only a small plastic clip that allows you to mechanically disable your laptop webcam, TAPATUCAM is the action of covering your laptop webcam, I tapatucam, and you? Do you tapatucam?
"Taping", "Post-iting" , ... are not the most stylish way to cover your webcam. There are better approaches: the simple, colored and customized TAPATUCAM clips can be used on most laptops.
2. About rewards(Take a look, There are new rewards):
There are 3 types of rewards:
1. As an early bird you will get the original package at an incredible price of only 5$
2. Your privacy is important for you, surf internet with Tapatucam original pack!
3. Share Tapatucam with your family and friends and get the #bagpack with 30 units for a crazy low price.
3. Who we are
Between us we have accumulated quite a few years of experience developing free software, internet platforms, and product designs. Now, we are ready to offer you our first product, melding together internet and privacy needs with industrial engineering.
The very first prototypes have already been developed. Take a look at the video and tell us what you think. We need your Kickstarter help to enhance the prototypes and to start the serial production of the TAPATUCAM clips.
So, briefly, we are going to invest the money in:
- Enhancing development prototypes
- Moldmaking for serial production
- Packaging costs
- Developing an ecommerce website
Risks and challenges
The production model will be an improved version of the fully functional prototype.
Our main production risk revolves around the mold tooling and initial volume production taking longer than we anticipate to reach our quality standards. We prepared for this by working with local manufacturers which we will visit on-site and whit whom we will coordinate every step of the way in order to ensure the on-time delivery of a finished quality product.
We will keep you up to date throughout our progress and the status of Tapatucam's journey from the production plant to your doorstep, because you have as much ownership of this project as we do.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Quick answer: No.
We have tested many laptops and the design of the clip lets you close the laptop perfectly.
If any laptop has the mechanism to close in the same place that the camera (little strange, IMHO), you could have this issue.
We offer free shipping to US and Spain, as claimed in the rewards text.
You have to click on "In the US" so Kickstarter will not ask you to add $10 for shipping.
We are very sorry that you have to use a backdoor, but we have not found any other easier way.
Tape is dirty, sticky and scratchy.
Tape will be more expensive, using day by day, put on and put of.
And because you have spent hundreds of dollars on a stylish laptop not to put a tape on it.
A lot of products born from the observation of human behavior, this is one of them.
