Did you know that RIT has live webcams you can see from the RIT website? Just go to the RIT homepage and click webcams. From there you can look at a live video coming from either the Kodak Quad or overlooking the Sentinel. It's a really cool thing to be able to do.

If you go on and start viewing a webcam's feed, you have the option of controlling the camera. You get it for 1 minute, or more if no one else is waiting. You can pan up, down, left, and right, and zoom in so far you can read the logo off of a backpack.

For instance, you are wondering if anyone you know is sitting on the brick wall in the Kodak quad. You go and see a wide image of the quad. A few people are hanging out.

Hmm...that young lad sitting on the brick wall looks familiar... Let's zoom in on him. Click to zoom in.

What can you see on the webcams? Go look, and put in the comments what you see!

Until next time,
Josh
