Oskar Santamaria is the designer behind the Wings Creative Telepresence. Wings is an add-on for your laptop designed to make it easier to teleconference with multiple people at once.

Wings attach to the back of your laptop and fold outward. Two screens are attached to each wing, meaning that you can talk with up to five people at once. While Skype already lets you do group video conferences, each member is relegated to a tiny screen that takes up your entire window. With Oskar Santamaria's Wings, you can talk to up to five team members and still have complete access to your desktop. If you happen to not be using one of the wings for chatting, then it also functions as its own mini-computer complete with web browser. Stats for Clip-On Video Screens Trending: Older & Chilly
