Construction Cameras, Wireless Outdoor Cameras - OxBlue

I visited the PEiR Group blog-site this morning. On April 28th, there was a post on that site that talked about a reprographer in Cincinnati who provided a digital camera system (service?) for a large construction project in that city. That post was interesting (at least it was to me!)

While doing some research, late one evening a couple of years ago (when I was still at NGI), I "discovered" a company that does that (active camera, accessible on-line, for construction project sites) for a living.

If you go to this web-address, you can see a real-live demonstration of how OX BLUE's system works.

By the way, I find it amusing when people say that they or others "discovered" something. Take for example, when people say that Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas. There were already people living in the "new lands" that Chris "discovered" and, that being the case, he didn't really discover the Americas, did he? Perhaps all of the history books should be revised to say that Chris was the first European "visitor" to the Americas, rather than the "discoverer"?
