Hi guys,

After some of my friends moved abroad, they've told me that it's hard to stay in touch with their parents or other elderly relatives. Their parents aren't very computer literate so can't use Skype etc and phone calls are expensive and not very personal which leads to loneliness...

What are people's thoughts on a really simple device that allows older parents and grandparents to video call through their TV (and can be set up remotely by someone else)?

I'm trying to develop one that will help people better stay in touch with their parents, grandparents and other older relatives.

Is this a problem for you? Would you use such a device?
