ToUcam (V-mail Camera)

Bronze
2001

Client: Philips Consumer Electronics

Philips needed a mechanism that would keep its PC camera stable and flexible once it was offered as a laptop peripheral. The resulting claw that hooks over a laptop screen fit the camera's animated shape, that of an electronic bird balancing on one leg. A new color palette was also introduced which will harmonize all Philips products within the PC peripherals market.
