The Armchair Wormhole

Live Cameras and Webcams

The terms "livecam" and "webcam" are somewhat loosely defined and often used interchangeably. We define a "webcam" as any camera whose image information is uploaded (generally via FTP) to an internet site. A "livecam" denotes a webcam whose image information is uploaded in short intervals (generally 5 seconds to 30 minutes) or on a continuous basis.

Armchair World's Artcam

We have a rather unique webcam that uploads images of an evolving water study. Since Armchair World makes water fountains, it seemed to be an appropriate application of the technology.

The livecam gives us a unique way to experience 'snapshots' of various locations around the world at essentially the same time. Think of how astounding this would have been just 25 years ago, how far we've come and how much we take for granted.
