Availability Details

Close
This item has been discontinued by the manufacturer and is no longer available.

The See Eye 2 Eye from Bodelin Technologies allows you to maintain eye contact when using a webcam for Internet communication. The device features a system of mirrors to place the image of the person you are talking to directly over the lens of your webcam. This does not affect the quality of the image that the other person sees. Maintaining eye contact when communicating, even with a web camera, helps to facilitate better communication and understanding. This is a great accessory for anyone who uses a webcam for frequent communication.

Maintain Eye Contact
The SE2E allows you to maintain eye contact when participating in webcam chat. Better eye contact facilitates better communication; the SE2E brings that to Internet chat.
WebCam Compatibility
The See Eye 2 Eye is compatible with most webcams that mount on top of a computer monitor. It uses a system of mirrors to place the image of the person you are talking to directly in front of the lens of your web camera.

        • Teleprompter Scripts

        Comments about Bodelin Technologies SE2E See Eye 2 Eye - Eye Contact Device for Webcams:

        OK, so this is a pretty cool product if you want to use it as a teleprompter for a script, or if you're doing casual video chats and want to look someone in the eye instead of glancing all over the place trying to figure out where to look. I bought it to do Google Hangouts and I've decided not to use it for that.

        There are a couple of points to note. When I used it with my old Microsoft webcam it worked fine, but keep in mind that it does not reflect your whole screen. So you need to keep the video image pretty small and move it right up under your camera. If you're using it as a teleprompter, there is software available. I'm sure it would also work with something like PromptDog but again, you'd have to make your text window pretty small.

        But then I got a new webcam, the HD Logitech C920, and this does not work well with that camera. The camera sits flat on your monitor so it catches the bottom of the teleprompter frame. To counteract that I built a little stand to raise the height of my camera, but then it captured the top and/or sides of the teleprompter.

        The worst part is, with the HD cam, it put a reflection over my video image. That kind of defeats the purpose of using a good HD webcam... the reflection was stripes and I couldn't get rid of it no matter what I did with the lighting or blocking off the recording lights. Can't even figure out what causes it in the first place.

        So my consensus is that if you have an older webcam or a lower-def webcam, this can be a handy tool. If you're using something state of the art, it unfortunately doesn't seem compatible.

        Comments about Bodelin Technologies SE2E See Eye 2 Eye - Eye Contact Device for Webcams:

        Both the device and free teleprompter software work very well. The only issues are:

        1. It does obscure part of the monitor screen (unavoidable).
        2. Does not accommodate all web cams, particularly the barrel types like the Microsoft Cinema series.

        For use as a teleprompter it is fantastic for anyone preferring not to spend $600 and up for an electronic version.

        Comments about Bodelin Technologies SE2E See Eye 2 Eye - Eye Contact Device for Webcams:

        This is used for video chatting and and as a teleprompter, which is was designed to do, and does so functionally. What's great about it is that you can now get a teleprompter for vidcasting for $50. What users will find challenging is the size, edge shadowing and possibly the plastic construction. Professionals used to systems costing several thousand dollars will probably laugh at the size and construction, but I wouldn't be ashamed to have this technology at my fingertips for next to nothing. In my opinion, it does just as its makers advertise. Edge shadowing is a function of whether your camera lens fits close-in; lots of camcorders will not be able to achieve this. If you're using a built-in (like iSight) webcam, get the one design to do that.
