do it yourself video baby monitor (with multiple viewers)

this is a wonderful post by lauren hirsch over at TUAW. I love these type of posts, where a techie uses the equipment they have to create a whole greater than the sum of it’s parts.

here lauren uses an older mac mini and a webcam, combined with her computer-networking experience and a couple of apps, she creates a real-time baby monitor that allows her to view the crib via chat on any computer at home, on her iphone (soon pushed upon audio detection, when the baby cries for examples) and moreover, to allow friends and family worldwide see the baby in real-time.

The mighty mini, take two: DIY video baby monitor.

simply wonderful.
