Cam coffee cams

19 Nov 2015

I’m lucky to work with a great friend who is one of the inventors of the webcam. I spend quite a bit of time on video calls with him - obviously, though a webcam.

The original application of the webcam was, as is well known, looking at a coffee pot. Today I was pleased to have an opportunity to use this coffee-related invention to capture a mugshot of its inventor drinking coffee from a mug which commemorates the invention.

Cheers, Quentin!

(Quentin’s mug reads “Dear World, We love coffee. So we invented the webcam. Yours, Cambridge”. More here and here.)
