Engineering the world’s first reactive webcam.
Lachlan Power was ready to shock the world. His influence had never been higher; as one of Australia’s most famous gamers, Lachlan commanded over 14 million YouTube subscribers and was a living Fortnite legend (with his own in-game skin to boot). But Lachlan was just getting started. He wasn’t about to get comfy and cash in on his success. He wanted to continue growing; to keep pushing until he had revolutionized Fortnite content. Lachlan was going to create the next level of battle royale immersion — but he couldn’t do it alone.
From the start, we knew Lachlan’s project would be our most challenging yet. His ask was something most engineers could only dream of; a living, dynamic webcam that would react to in-game health status. That meant with each medkit, shield break or knock-down his cam overlay would adapt and morph its appearance. Viewers would see combat from a whole new perspective, witnessing the shifting tides of battle like never before.
Up to now, no one had ever developed this tech. We were determined to be the world’s first.
