Chinese camera specialist Gsou has new anti-peep USB webcams. Each anti-peep cam is equipped with a robotic arm that automatically covers the camera lens as soon as a video conference session ends. A manual override lets users uncover the lens at will.

The 5-layer glass coating lens provides good-quality video, but the Gsou USB webcam doesn’t support HD video calls. Still, it's awfully cute, and who doesn't like the idea of controlling video privacy?
