If you worry about webcam hacking, whether you are generally paranoid about internet safety or maybe you watched a particularly scary episode of Criminal Minds, this small device could be the answer. The Tapatucam is a plastic clip-on that will hide your camera and prevent would-be hackers from seeing things you would prefer to keep to yourself.

This item also has a more pleasing visual esthetic than taping over it with a piece of paper or something similar. The only other solution to webcam hacking would be to not use a computer or laptop at all, but that would be unrealistic for many in today's technology-driven world.

Unfortunately this is only an idea, as it failed to reach its goal on Kickstarter.
