Russian video-talk site Chatroulette has launched a new feature called "Skinsroulette." Contrary to what you might expect on the noted penis exhibition hub, Skinsroulette does not involve actual skin. Sadly, it also doesn't involve improvements to the Chatroulette core.

Skinsroulette allows you to change the background on your Chatroulette sessions. The options include paisley, hot pink, rainbow and a Greek mythology theme, according to TechCrunch's Alexia Tsotsis. Chatroulette founder Andrey Ternovskiy tells Tsotsis traffic is on an upswing, but the latest charts from Google, Quantcast and (below) show a long steady decline. To come back from the grave, Chatroulette would need a lot more than a change of scenery.
