The latest Nope computer privacy aids have been launched via Kickstarter this week in the form of a sound blocker and enhanced sliding web cam cover designed for smartphones, laptops and Apple computers.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the latest additions to the ever growing Nope range our products which now include Nope Sound Blocker and the Nope Webcam Cover which the company says is currently the world’s thinnest measuring just 0.3 mm in thickness.
Ananda Svarupa Das and development team explain more about their latest Kickstarter project :
We started this project because we volunteer with students who use digital camera enabled devices. The shocking truth is that just about anyone can hack into your computer and turn on the camera or microphone without you even knowing it. The only way to guarantee your privacy is to cover the camera or block your microphone when you are not using it. We believe that it is your space, so you should be the one to decide when your camera or microphone should be used.
Nope Sound Blocker and Nope Webcam Cover feature a subtle design which compliments the beautiful aesthetic of top devices. The micro electronic circuitry in Nope Sound Blocker forces your device to sense an installed mic. This turns off the device’s on board microphones which blocks out sound. Nope Webcam Cover is just 2 parts and 3M tape. The mechanism is a slider that runs along the the top and bottom rails. We used a combination of high grade aluminum for the outer rim and a polymer sheet for the slider.
Pledges are now available from the official Kickstarter campaign page starting at just $10 with delivery expected to take place during November 2017.
