New Tech Will Give You More Eye Contact During A Video Conference

The location of the computer screen is typically lower than where the webcam is located, and as a result, it almost always looks like everyone is looking down instead of each other.
A new technology from the Computer Graphics Laboratory at ETH Zurich is looking to change that with a software that recognizes and rotates people's faces in video calls to make it look like they are looking into the camera.
Webcams will have to be equipped with depth sensors in order for it to work. What do you think? Is eye contact negligible in videoconferencing?
