Necessity is the Mother of Invention

Coffee PotNecessity (or at least a desire to enhance quality of life) is the Mother of Invention. If you enjoy a cup of coffee while you work, you will be able to relate to the inspiration for deploying the world’s very first webcam.

The first webcam was created in 1991 at the University of Cambridge so that people in various parts of the building could avoid unproductive trips to the coffee maker by viewing live greyscale images of the coffee pot status on their desktops.
