Update your Zoom meetings and video streams with this high-quality camera app

XSplit VCam lets you use DSLR quality picture even when video chatting on your laptop.

  • Working from home often requires professional-looking backdrops for Zoom meetings.
  • Zoom backgrounds are glitchy and DIY green screens aren't very reliable.
  • The XSplit VCam replaces your background with an image, video, webpage or YouTube video.

While work from home has adapted to a new norm, so has the need to maintain a professional backdrop or creatively enhance the space around you. Zoom backgrounds are glitchy and DIY green screens aren't very reliable with the simple quality of a computer's camera lens. For those who do regular web chats, film podcast episodes, live stream their work, or have really any need for videography or photography, there's no need to settle for blurry or whitewashed backgrounds.

It's now possible to give your webcam a DSLR or Portrait Mode style effect, with the simplicity of just one gadget attachment. The XSplit VCam is designed to replace your background with an image, video, webpage or YouTube video. It's basically like your own personal photography assistant and editor—and you call all the shots.

Now, you can prepare high-quality pictures for work presentations or videos for your social channels. Plus, you'll look great when just video chatting with extended family. The XSplit VCam is on sale for $19.99, with a lifetime subscription to its 24/7 tech support. Even the least tech-savvy person can learn and benefit from this.

Teachers and other professionals will really get a lot out of its versatility and ability to adapt to all major video chat applications and conferencing solutions. Interviews, lectures, and presentations will change for the better as you can project video and artwork so beautifully.

The system works with Windows 7 64-bit with the latest Intel or NVIDIA graphics drivers, 6th Generation Intel® Core™ series processor or with Intel® HD Graphics enabled, or NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series or above, but unfortunately, is not compatible with MAC OS and iOS systems at this time.

The accessory along with a lifetime subscription is available for $19.99 for a limited time, which is a 59% discount from its original $49 price tag.

Psychopath-ish: How “healthy” brains can look and function like those of psychopaths

A recent study used fMRI to compare the brains of psychopathic criminals with a group of 100 well-functioning individuals, finding striking similarities.

Mind & Brain
  • The study used psychological inventories to assess a group of violent criminals and healthy volunteers for psychopathy, and then examined how their brains responded to watching violent movie scenes.
  • The fMRI results showed that the brains of healthy subjects who scored high in psychopathic traits reacted similarly as the psychopathic criminal group. Both of these groups also showed atrophy in brain regions involved in regulating emotion.
  • The study adds complexity to common conceptions of what differentiates a psychopath from a "healthy" individual.
