Skycam camera would harness Skype to deliver streaming video

John P. Mello Jr. | May 3, 2013
For the technically adept, setting up an IP video camera is an energizing challenge; for everyone else, it's a task that they'd rather avoid.

Yiu believes that Skycam is more secure than IP cams because it uses Skype. "If people can hack Skype, then they can hack Skycam," he said. "But Skype is a really secure service."

Asked by PCWorld about Skype's security, Microsoft replied via email that "Skype was built from the ground up with security and privacy in mind, and our product is supported by some of the world's best software developers and engineers who are both vigilant and extremely focused on making Skype as secure as possible."

Yiu is looking to raise $50,000 to get Skycam off the ground. With 27 days left to raise the money, he has taken in $3633.
