New webcam improves eye to eye contact

I. IRIS is the desktop alternative for video conferencing. Video conferencing and tele-presence is expensive. Moreover cheaper desktop applications do not exist. IRIS is the flexible and cheaper alternative. IRIS fits perfectly on every desk and can also be used as a second monitor. With IRIS you have eye contact which makes it seem as if you really are sitting at the same table. There are a number of alternatives to IRIS, the Eye Catcher for instance. There is however one big difference. In all the alternatives the receiver must also have similar equipment and you cannot use them in combination with web conference or video-chat programs. IRIS is therefore the most flexible tool on the market.

II. IRIS can be used in combination with all web conferencing and video chat programs. You are not limited to one web conferencing or video chat program with IRIS. You simply use the program that suits you the best. Whether you Skype or use Netviewer or Webex for example: IRIS greatly improves the quality of your online contacts. Read the rest of this entry »

The Webcam Chat Roulette Phenomenon

Webcam Chat Roulette is a new style of chatting online that connects site users with webcams to other webcam users at random. A number of sites specializing in this type of online chatting are now available, with varying degrees of popularity. Some sites connect visitors at random with others from around the country, or even from around the world, while others allow the user to input specifics regarding what type of person he or she would prefer to chat with online via webcam.

This new trend has both good and bad points. On the positive side, webcamchatroulette participants can be introduced to a never ending stream of people from all races, age groups, countries and walks of life. A willing webcam chatroulette participant in the United States can easily meet people from countries all over the world with just a few clicks of a mouse. This new style of chatting also does away with the need for hours of endless typing on a keyboard. Rather than inputting messages to another individual, which in no way relate the sender’s emotions or tone of voice, the people chatting can talk directly to one another. This allows everyone involved to get to know one another on a more personal level. A final positive point is that webcamchatroulette takes away the mystery and concern of never really knowing who you are talking to on the other end of the internet. Traditional chat and e-mail users who connect with someone far away while online cannot know without actually meeting that person face-to-face if he or she is who they claim to be. With webcamchatroulette, everything about the person is out there for viewing upon first meeting. Read the rest of this entry »

Captiva Island Webcam

Live from the beach on Captiva Island, Florida, from the legendary ‘Tween Waters Inn, Day Spa & Marina

Captiva Island is an island in Lee County in southwest Florida, located just offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. Originally part of neighboring Sanibel Island to the southeast, it was severed when a hurricane’s storm surge washed away a new channel, called Blind Pass, which had filled in over the years but was reopened during a dredging project in the summer of 2009. Like Sanibel, Captiva is a barrier island to Pine Island (to the east of Captiva and north of Sanibel), however it is much narrower. The only automobile access to Captiva is via the Sanibel Causeway and Sanibel-Captiva Road. Captiva was homesteaded in 1888 and a tiny cemetery next to The Chapel by the Sea has the grave of the original resident, William Herbert Binder (1850-1932), an Austrian. Half the island is in private ownership, with “Millionaire’s Row”, luxury homes on gulf and bay side of “San-Cap” road. The South Seas Island Resort entry gate is at the end of this road. Roosevelt Channel on the east side of the island, is named for Theodore Roosevelt who fished there. Read the rest of this entry »
