Let’s face it, everyone has fantasized about being famous at least once. Now you’ve got your chance to get recognized while playing an online game with 15Seconds.me, formerly known as FamousCam.

15Seconds is a real-time digital soapbox for anyone with a webcam and a microphone.  As such, it is a very interesting and unique way to gain an online audience. How do you play 15Seconds? Simple. First make sure you’re using a computer with a webcam that is turned on. When you start the game, you will be prompted to place 5 clicks anywhere you please on the screen. If your click is closest to the “winning pixel” (which is a green circle that will appear if you win), your webcam will turn on and you are instantly broadcast to all of the other players for 15 seconds.

If you didn’t win the round, no worries, you can still watch the winner and give your vote of “up” or “down” with all the other players to create an overall approval rating. The video and its feedback is then stored in the site archives for future browsing.

15Seconds was developed by Michael Keen and Danny Miller, who realized it’s more important to work on something you enjoy rather than simply making money and having health insurance. The idea for it was inspired by applications like ChatRoulette because of the simplicity of the idea and ease of use.
