The first webcam ever


WORLD'S FIRST WEBCAM
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Where was the world's first webcam?

In late 1991 Paul Jardetzky, Quentin Stafford-Fraser and other University of Cambridge students write custom software to display images online via the world's first webcam.

With such an important creation the webcam has to have a very important role, and that it does.

The webcam is pointed at the Trojan room coffee pot to save caffeine deprived student from a pointless trip to the coffee room when the pot is empty.

In November 1993 the webcam was connected to the internet making it available for all internet users.

After almost a decade of providing lazy students with fresh coffee the Trojan Room Coffee Pot webcam was finally switched off at 0954 UTC on Wednesday  August 22 2001.

Below you can see the final image taken by the webcam as it is in the process of being shut down.
