iSeeU brings FaceTime-like video calling to iPhone 3GS [Accessory]


There is an endless list of apps that allow you to make video calls with your iPhone 4, and aside from Apple's FaceTime, most of t hese are also compatible with the 3GS, but it can be quite awkward to video call without a front facing camera.

Korean company, PLAYMASS, have produced a new accessory that can solve the problem, iSeeU.

iSeeU clips onto your i Phone 3GS, and flips open to reveal a series of mirrors, that allow you make a video call using the rear facing camera. One neat thing about iSeeU is, you can easily swivel it off to the side to switch the cameras, so that you can still show your friend what the rear facing camera would normally see.

iSeeU is available in 5 colours, black, white, blue, pink and green, and comes with a stylish carry case, so you can easily store it away when you’re not using it.

PLAYMASS is now offering the iSeeU accessory to pre-order on their website for $24.95. They will be shipping later this month. Will you be getting an iSeeU clip to video call with friends? Will this stop you from upgrading to an iPhone 4?

iSeeU brings FaceTime-like video calling to iPhone 3GS [Accessory]


Looks nice...but I think I'll stick with the ip4. I don't need anymore accessories to carry around.

Definitely falls into the "why didn't I think of that" category.
@Marco OR you can spend $25 on the iSeeU, pocket $275, and then use it on the improved iPhone 5. Smart, eh?

Also works if you wanna look at the screen while you record yourself in HD with the iPhone 4. Nice idea.
On the other hand, high price point. You could just chat in front of an ordinary mirror and save $25.

Have you use Tango on 3Gs?
Forget Fring... Tango is perfect to make video calls between 3Gs and 4.

Considering the iPhone 4 is basically the iPhone 3GS but with more power/better speed, and other features I don't feel is worth upgrading for at this time, I think I'll bite and get one of these, if I can use it over my existing phone case. Like igorsky said, save the big cash for the next iPhone version - 25 bucks is minor compared to 2 benjamins...

Is there an application for video with voice calling like tango for iPhone 3G
I tried to download tango but it doesn't let me do it. My wife has 3GS and she had no problem. If there is a video call app that actually is working on 3G then this new
I seeU app is definitely worth it.

This is ridiculous.. Look at this sleepy guy wasn't up to talked with his dear friend but happy to see this pretty girl ? What a turn off. Wasn't the true friend important to him rather than look at pretty girl as tool ? SICKENING!
Anyway, this is an interesting tool since some people cannot afford iPhone 4. I tried skype 3.0 with mirror and it works great!

I live in the US so is it sold here in the US and if so where can I get on and how much does it cost? Thanks
