Boulder entrepreneur Terry Gold, CEO of voice-recognition company Gold Systems, has a U-Tube video playing on his blog that he created with a Web cam running in his Toyota FJ Cruiser. It’s definitely worth checking out.
He’s caught the attention of some other regular techie bloggers, who have wondered how in the heck he even got a live cam running in his car anyway. His video, he explains at terrygold.com, was created by capturing, saving and simultaneously posting to his blog photos on his drive over to Kansas. (It reminds me of a few bird hunting trips, except I never made it to the world’s largest prairie dog.) It was all done in real-time, Terry explains, since his FJ is now equipped with a Kyocera KR1 Broadband EVDO Router with WiFi. Did I get that right?
Terry has a little more information on his site about what he calls his FJ Cruiser Car Computer project. I’ve been meaning to give Terry a call, but now I’m absolutely going to talk him into a ride somewhere so I can see this setup for myself. His site includes a cam shot called "Live (at times) from the FJ Cam," but it’s been stuck on the same image for the past week that I’ve checked. Maybe I just need to go over and help him give a good swift kick. That usually works on my computers.
