Do you have a crazy friend or a crazy uncle that used to say that the CIA was spying on them and their computer? Did the NSA revelations made you realize that maybe he wasn't so crazy after all? Yes the NSA is spying on your every move.. They have access to your computer history, stored files, email, youtube, porn search history etc. When you think you couldn't be violated anymore now allegations say that the NSA has the ability to turn your computer camera or webcam on and watch everything you do.

If you don't believe me.. just google "NSA webcam"
here is an article about it

Step One The Idea.. I pretty much already detailed my idea.. so now 3d modeling..

I measured my Ipad 3 and my Macbook Pro.. the thickness is about 10 mm or less.. so i made the clip slightly larger and gave it a spring  like twist..

Some people might want to keep it PG-13 so i modeled one with less profanity.. I also Modeled one for the people who dont care or want to make a statement 



Step 1: 3D Print and Test

So My fonts were a little bit too slim to print.. I went back and picked a bolder font to make sure it prints correctly. Also the 1st couple of prototypes were too small to cover my computer..

I went back and i resized them to almost twice the size.. The spring works great even on my ipad which gets a lot of moving around.. stays firmly in place.

Now is time for Shapeways.. they let me put them up and sell them for people who are interested..

between me and my wife we have a lot of of cameras to cover.. so i created a 4 pack..

These cam covers make a very great stocking stuffer for any of your friends and family that doesn't like the NSA spying on them,, You can purchase them here
