The earliest form of sex cam involved the use of a webcam that was linked to a video camera. The webcam was used to display a live video feed of a person who was on the other end of the link. The way it worked was that the person using the cam site would be able to control the direction and zoom of the video feed in real time.
Manipulate the level of intimacy
This meant that as the person in the link changed his or her angle, the image on the camera would change accordingly. This meant that the cam site owner could manipulate the level of intimacy between two people and consequently have people that were in the mood to go “live” with each other feel uncomfortable or shy about having a conversation with someone they had not first met in person.
A better version of the sex cam in my opinion is the sex cam that has a 3D effect to it. The person who is using the cam site is not actually seeing the actual person behind the cam but rather a series of realistic moving projections. What happens here is that the person who is viewing the sex cam must first put on a head mounted display that is used to project the image onto the side of a wall.
Then the person will be able to move around the room as if they were actually there and the sex cam will function as though it was a video camera. The person using the cam site will be able to control how far away from the wall the image appears and the length of time the image appears on the wall. This works because the person using the cam site has to be able to do some of the movements themselves in order to get the image to appear on the wall.
What this means for the sex cam in my opinion is that it makes for a very good interactive chat room. With people viewing the images of other people they can get very intimate with one another in the event that they are comfortable enough to talk with the person they are linking up with.
Used to interact with the sex cam
I am sure that the early versions of the sex cam that I saw had some serious kinks that needed to be worked out. There was the issue of people getting the image too close to their bodies and there were also problems with those that did not have a proper head mounted display.
As the technology developed though, there were some new developments in the cameras and the forms of interaction that can be performed with them. These advancements included the placement of the cam operator and the ability to have images appear from all angles.
The camera that is used to interact with the sex cam has evolved over the years from what I remember using when I first started watching the cam sites. The ones I had a few years ago featured a special “floating” camera that was used in conjunction with a small video card.
What this meant was that it was possible to have a person who was being viewed by the cam operator simultaneously appear on the walls of the room as well as appear on the camera screen. This eliminated the need for a person to show off his or her physical appearance and allowed people to be more open with each other.
The early days of the sex cam
When this first came out, it was also interesting because there was a person that appeared in both places. However, these cam operators tended to work only one angle at a time and they were generally younger people than what I had come to know and love over the years.
There were new perspectives that could be taken on the sex cam that allowed for more meaningful interaction between two people that seemed to connect far better than before. Of course, these were still the early days of the sex cam so it would be some time before we would see many more advanced developments.
In all, The Kostenlos’ work on the sex cam is very well done. It’s been well received by both consumers and staff alike and they are likely to keep working on the project until it reaches the point where it becomes commonplace.
