Coming soon Webcam Cover-Ups – pack of 10. Look, we’re not saying anyone’s watching you. We’re not saying that some secret organization has taken over your webcam and is recording you, right now, as you read this sentence.
And we’re definitely not saying the government’s watching you. We’re not saying that the FBI or the NSA took over your laptop’s camera and are making sure you’re not using your Onion Pi too much.
But let’s just say, hypothetically, that it wasn’t crazy and that someone did want to take over your webcam and watch your every move. And let’s just say you didn’t want them to – because you were building an open source cell phone jammer, or an Arduino anarchy inciter, or you can only do one pull-up and just ate a whole bag of Bugles.
Then maybe spending a couple bucks on a set of ten, high gloss webcam blocking stickers wouldn’t seem so ridiculous. They’re pitch black, like an eye-hole-free balaclava for your computer’s built-in webcam, and have an inset, light black logo to rep your privacy concerns.
Again, we’re not saying anyone’s watching you. All we’re saying is that they might be – and isn’t that good enough?
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
