[prMac.com] Rancho Santa Margarita, California - Launching today on Kickstarter, Pulp Systems is proud to announce iShutter is a simple, discrete way to ensure your privacy by guarding your Mac's webcam against unwanted eyes. Created to be a simple, always-on solution, iShutter is a magnetic metal strip that allows users to physically block the embedded webcam on a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air laptop.
No one should have to worry about privacy, especially when it comes to prying eyes through a laptop. To ensure privacy is always within reach, iShutter is designed to stay on your computer at all times, even when the lid is closed. A see-through opening in the center of the strip easily allows the user to enable the web camera by sliding the strip left or right, and to then simply block the camera when not in use.
"We developed iShutter to address the potential awkward moments when the web camera is accidentally enabled during a Skype conversation or an online conference call," said Sibba Bergthorsdottir, creator of the product. "Additionally, the iShutter addresses the raising concern about privacy and threats of web camera hacking".
Pulp Systems, LLC, the company behind iShutter, has set the funding goal for this Kickstarter campaign at $8,000 and will make the product entirely in the U.S. To learn more, or to back the Kickstarter project to receive an iShutter, please visit website.
Created in 2013 by Karl Jonsson, engineer, and Sibba Bergthorsdottir, technical designer, Pulp Systems aims to create consumer products that give people peace of mind in their daily lives. Based in Orange County, California, the company's first product is the iShutter, with the expectation of future innovative products that also provide privacy simply and effectively.
