Eyebloc protects you from having someone watching you through your computer. The camera on your computer, iPad or laptop and blackmail you. Shark Tank's Robert Herjavec verifies what C.J. claims. Eyebloc is a small plastic piece that slides over your screen camera.
The eyebloc camera blocker is less than two months old at time of pitch.
He invested $5,000 in an aluminum mold which gets his price at $1.25, and he wants the money for a steel mold so he can buy it for $.25 and sell for $10.

What do the Shark Tank Investors say about eyebloc
Mark Cuban tells him that he has bubble gum that he can use. Mark tells him that he's selling a product not a company and he is out.
Daymond John says Robert is one of the top ten cybercrime experts in the world, and if he is not in there is no way I am going to think about it. I am out.
Kevin O'Leary gives him a story about turning the flag upside down because it's “crap on a stick.” He is out.
Lori Greiner thinks he should be charging a $1 for this at most. She is out.
Robert Herjavec tells CJ there are a ton of ways to protect kids, and he doesn't think Eyebloc is one of them, so he goes out.
eyebloc after Shark Tank?
According to C.J. and his Kickstarter campaign, Eyebloc sold thousands of units after Shark Tank. He ran the campaign to fund a new mold at the cost of $5,000 and secured $1,809 of the goal through 48 backers. His last post is from 2014 on his Facebook Fan Page. There is one product offered on Amazon by Eyebloc, and it's not a camera blocker, but an RFID card blocker for your wallet.
