Are you worried about the NSA, your invasive employer or a world of creepy people with tech skills watching what you do through your camera phone?
You’re going to want to check out the iPatch.
Former journalist Michael Sorrentino created the camera case to block the front and back end of iPhones. His HeadFunder campaign came to an end last month, raising 105 percent of a $20,000 goal.
Sorrentino said he was inspired to make the iPatch after reporting on a case in Pennsylvania where a school district took thousands of photos of students through school-issued laptops. Cases filed against the district settled out of court in 2010.
Leaks by Edward Snowden analyzed by Der Spiegel found that the NSA has been able to use iPhone microphones and cameras as surveillance devices since 2008.
Sorrentino hopes to bring the iPatch to other smartphone cases in the future.
