That’s a terrible thing if your computer are attacked by hacker. Because they can not only steal your data, but also control the webcam. Hope your computer wasn’t in your bedroom. How to prevent your webcam from being used by the hackers? Gsou USB webcam brought us a fun and useful way.
This USB webcam is designed by Gsou, a China-based manufacturer. It’s shaped as a little cute robot with clasping hands, and comes with Gsou’s VVS (video stream surveillance) technology Before you run any instant messaging software, the webcam’s lens is covered by the robot’s hands. Once detecting any running instant messaging software such as MSN or Skype, Gsou robot-shaped USB webcam will put down its hands. Of course, you also can raise its hands for covering the lens by hand. It’s a pity the Gsou USB webcam has no HD video capability.
Moreover, we also found some USB webcam with the anti-peep technology. Unfortunately, we have no idea how to get it. Here is a video about the Gsou’s VVS technology. Really simple but definitely useful.
