Eyelinez Beats Zoom Fatigue, Aces Virtual Learning and Masters Video Interviews

Eyelinez recently launched a product to improve personal virtual connections and combat Zoom fatigue.

“Maintaining proper eye contact with a camera is not a new challenge, but it’s a daunting task that many have faced over the past year while working, studying and even dating virtually through a camera,” according to the company announcement.

Eyelinez was founded in the midst of the pandemic “out of the need to find deeper connections in a world now communicating over cameras,” the announcement says.

They are “a focus and engagement aid, which draws attention to the camera, while also improving natural connections with a virtual audience,” according to the company announcement.

These vinyl, repositionable stickers surround a camera with fun designs to remind users where to look to make eye contact and master their virtual presence.

“Eyelinez provides a simple solution to an outsized problem,” said Eyelinez founder and CEO Mark Quinn. “Effective eye contact is essential for interpersonal communication and research shows that there’s a positive physiological response from when we make eye contact.

“Research shows that you can create the same positive response we all enjoy in person, virtually, with further research showing that effective virtual eye contact makes you more confident, memorable and attractive,” he said.

Eyelinez are designed for integrated cameras such as those found in laptops, tablets and phones, as well as for external web cameras in an array of clever designs.
