The San Jose-based company has a small product with a big goal: to create more meaningful virtual connections.
San Jose, Calif. June 2021: Eyelinez founder launches product to improve personal virtual connections and combat Zoom fatigue. Maintaining proper eye contact with a camera is not a new challenge, but it’s a daunting task that many have faced over the past year while working, studying and even dating virtually through a camera.
Eyelinez was founded in the midst of the pandemic out of the need to find deeper connections in a world now communicating over cameras. They are a focus and engagement aid, which draws attention to the camera, while also improving natural connections with a virtual audience.
These vinyl, repositionable stickers surround a camera with welcoming, fun designs to remind users where to look to make eye contact and master their virtual presence.
“Eyelinez provides a simple solution to an outsized problem,” says Eyelinez’s Founder and CEO, Mark Quinn. “Effective eye contact is essential for interpersonal communication and research shows that there’s a positive physiological response from when we make eye contact.
“Research shows that you can create the same positive response we all enjoy in person, virtually, with further research showing that effective virtual eye contact makes you more confident, memorable, and attractive”
