Full nudity face to face video chat

But there's one technology whose lack of traction is more of a head scratcher than a head spinner: Why hasn't video calling become the norm?

Video calling or videoconferencing has been around for years.

Sure, in the early days you needed an ISDN line and thousands of dollars worth of ISA boards to get it to work -- and then there weren't that many people you could call.

But now there are free video calling apps on countless devices, video cameras everywhere, and bandwidth to boot (although it may cost you).

What might individually seem like minor ‘improvements’ on my face end up making me look like a malnourished alien.
