Two Way Web Cam Feeds With Audio

Nice meeting you today at the Manasota Neighborhood Summit at Robert L.Taylor Community Center after my presentation for Siesta Key Association’s Mini Reefs.

I had mentioned setting up multiple 24/7 live, two way web cam feeds with the nine sister cities. Walk by and say hi and they say how’s the weather.

Maybe nine TVs placed inside window displays near each other with descriptive signage on Main Street with the microphone and speaker hidden in the overhang would allow everyone walking by to stop and say hello. Stores gets more foot traffic and world wide exposure. (Outdoor sidewalk audio might be illegal) Market it as the Sister Ciy Walk area.

Or build nine city kiosks in a circle and put them down by our Bayfront Kissing Statue and any tourism park at the sister cities. Market it as the Sister City Circle.

There is electricity already along that mound from the first Season of Sculpture in 2000. So you could just plug them in and turn them on. It would
Be good if all nine cities joined in.

I’m guessing the cost would be the monthly WIFI service, nine small computers, TV sets, cameras, speakers, microphones, store window mountings or build waterproof art sculpture kiosks, electricity account. Equipment would not need to be brand new. Certified older equipment would be fine.

Anyhow, let me know if you want to continue the brainstorm.
