the two most problematic areas during video calls are lighting and field of view. lighting can be perfect, but it doesn’t make much difference if you can only see the chin of your chat mate. frustrated by the small issues common in video communication, swedish product creation agency frankly created ‘ViW’. thanks to a dual lens assemblage, ‘ViW’ is able to provide a 50% wider field of vision than conventional webcams; and does so without distorting or compromising image quality.

‘ViW’ can be used with phones, tablets, or computers 

 

 

 

since everyone can actually fit within ‘ViW’, it was imperative that poor lighting not diminish the progress made. the object has an integrated illumination processor that uses an environmental sensor to analyze brightness, and adjusts luminosity accordingly. ‘ViW’ is rechargeable directly via USB, and can work continuously for up to four hours. it works with computers, tables, and phones — assumedly through bluetooth technology — and can stick to all clean, smooth surfaces. frankly is currently preparing a crowdfunding campaign to release ‘ViW’ to the masses; the kickstarter launch is scheduled for tuesday, august 25th
