Move over Skype, Facetime, Hangouts. Here comes Spreedbox, a fully open source, secure videoconferencing solution
Spreedbox can offer private and secure video chat using Linux and open source technologies. All it needs is your support.
Following the trend of privacy-respecting products and projects coming out of Europe (e.g., ownCloud, Kolab, and Plasma Mobile), German firm struktur AG has started a Kickstarter project called Spreedbox, which aims to offer a secure audio video conferencing service. According to the project page, "The Spreedbox is a unique device for secure audio/video conferencing, text and video messaging and file sharing. The Spreedbox is your own conferencing, meeting and file exchange service on the Internet and puts the control and security of your data into your own hands."
The company is trying to raise over $25,000 for the project. (At the time this story was written, they had raised $9,200 with 25 more days to go.)
To better understand the goal of the project I talked to Niels Mache, CEO of struktur AG / Spreed.
