CCTV Stickers For Your Webcam

Apparently inspired by real-life incidents of schoolchildren unknowingly viewed through webcams, the CCTV stickers are designed to turn creepy spying into a visual metaphor. The stickers go around the pinhole of most laptops or netbooks, making the webcam part an array of drawn cameras.

The CCTV stickers are printed on die-cut vinyl, and retail from Maker's Market for $2.25 a piece.

    interesting...maybe they should make stickers for the people viewing through the webcam.

    it could read "SPY ON THIS, B!@#$"

    I don't know about all of you, but at first I missunderstood this. I thought this was an article about stickers that one could put up that 'pretended' to be CCTV cameras. Which would be a wonderful idea. But in all honesty, what the hell is the point of this article? Am I missing something?

    I think covering is the way to go, say a piece of electrical tape or something, but nice looking.

    I'm a make a fortune by suing them for false advertisement. Because technically "webcams" aren't "closed circuit".

    Or, you could take a sharpie, circle the camera, and write "CAMERA" in big black letters. But that's too obvious I suppose.

    I put a post-it over my webcam until I use it, then I put the post-it back on when I'm done. I don't see why people would have a problem with doing this.

    I disable my webcam altogether, as I have no use for it.
