BeeldBuddy helps restoring contact with persons in care-homes 

See grand-children play at home

The Dutch Initiative BeeldBuddy (video-buddy) aims to partially restore contact between people in care-homes for eldery people or disabled people with their loved ones outside. BeeldBuddy consists of a very large screen on wheels, equipped with a quality webcam and controlled by a Raspberry Pi computer. It is very easy to use and allows to look into the living room of childeren, grandchildren and others. Of course, they can look back and talk.

BeeldBuddy cannot replace real contact in person, but it provides the ooportunity to be much closer to loved ones in their own environment than is currently possible.
