Make people fall in love with you with eye contact
In a Zoom meeting or video call, it’s tempting to look at the other person on the screen, but then you can’t make eye contact.
Plexicam is the solution! !
Captivate with eye contact
desktop or notebook
Up, down, left, right, freely
Plexicam doesn’t choose PC or camera. If you have your own PC and web camera or smartphone, you can freely install it up, down, left and right. Place it next to your document when reading, or close to the other person’s eyes during an online meeting so you can maintain continuous eye contact while looking at the camera.

Webcams are changing rapidly and we don’t want to be tied to a particular model. Also, the built-in PC camera and small camera have poor image quality, and your attractiveness will be halved. “Plexicam” is a smartphone holder that allows you to use your smartphone to create images with higher image quality. You can easily tilt your smartphone up, down, left and right.
* When using the camera with a smartphone, various free third-party software can be downloaded.
