It was this past Spring Break (10′) and my daughter’s went to visit family up north while I went to the panhandle of Florida to work on BeThereRightNow (ah to be a kid again)…okay back to reality. Melissa and I decided we would go down to where our 1st camera location was… Destin Gulf Gate… and call our family and friends to get online and so they could “see” us from the camera while we were at the beach (not in our bathing suits, of course).
We positioned ourselves on a bench, updated our status on Facebook, tweeted the website and I called my daughters to see if they could see me.
It was so funny because my daughter had to wait a couple minutes to get control of the camera but once she did I watched the camera focus on Melissa and I and starting waving frantically telling her I loved her. That was the neatest thing to be on the phone with her, waving, telling her I loved her and knowing she could see me. What was even more amazing was the fact that all of the family up north was able to see me as well.
To be able to call family and friends while at a location and hear their voice and them being able to see you is such a neat experience.
It got me thinking also…
What if the camera could be mounted where people have birthday parties? I can remember many birthday parties that I threw for my kids where their grandparents could not make it. With this Live Interactive Camera no Grandparent will EVER have to miss another birthday party.
What about you? Can you think of another way that our Live Interactive Cameras could be used?
We would love to hear your ideas!
