Mirror, mirror on the wall, can you help me make a video call? There has been no shortage of apps that allow users to make Facetime-like video calls on the iPhone 3GS (s aapl) or even on Android (s goog) phones. However, those calls can be kind of awkward when you don’t have a front-facing camera. That’s where iSeeU comes in, a new cell phone accessory from a Korean company called Playmass.
The idea behind iSeeU is pretty simple: Mount a mirror on your cell phone, and you’ll be able to film yourself during a call with a rear-facing camera. Check out the rather charming video below for a quick demo.
The neatest thing about iSeeU seems to be that you can easily swivel it around, making it possible to share all kinds of stuff without having to move the phone (or switch camera inputs on the 4G, for that matter). The company also has a number of additional videos up on YouTube, but there’s really not that much more to explain. It’s a cell phone accessory, after all, albeit a clever one.
