The first webcam was created at the University of Cambridge in England to check the status of a coffee pot. Dubbed the Trojan Room, it was located in Cambridges’ old computer laboratory and provided the inspiration for the world’s first webcam.
The idea behind the 1991 coffee cam stemmed to save people working in the building the disappointment of finding the pot empty and making the trip to the room for no reason.
