MAIN Arrow to Computer AgeTechnology Arrow to Computer Age - InternetInternet Arrow to WebcamsWebcams

webcam cameraWebcam, short for web camera, captures images in real-time across the Internet, and has become one of the Web's most popular features, allowing visitors access to parts of the world they might otherwise never experience.

Like the Internet itself, web cameras began in their infancy in 1991 as the first webcam was pointed - just for laughs - at the Trojan room coffee machine in the computer science department of Cambridge University. From there, the new technology was adopted by businesses and industry for live exchange of information via videoconferencing.

Soon the tourism industry saw webcams as a compelling way to sell other exotic travel destinations. Today, a click of the mouse can result in live visual reports anywhere from the beach in Maui to the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

With the proliferation of personal web cameras, a webcam can be pointed at most anything and published online by anyone.

Just up ahead, find out how you can see the world online - in real time - including top sites directing visitors the most popular webcams around the WWW ...
