I ran across a new lie webcam site today called Seero. With PCMech LIVE, we are users of Ustream. Ustream, so far, has been the best service I’ve tested. So, is Seero just a Ustream clone (like Yahoo LIVE)? Actually, no. Because Seero is mixing it with mapping technology and GPS.
There is a story on Webware talking about Seero. As the story puts it, Seero is no really being designed for broad consumer use (lifecasting). It could fit in quite well for things like sporting events, though. And assumedly, anybody with the money to fork out for the needed equipment could do it. However, it works best when you’re using a computer connected to GPS. That wouldn’t be the cheapest thing to pull off.
You can check out the setup by checking out John Rife’s video stream. I met this guy out in Orlando at BlogOrlando, and he and his wife do a video podcast from around the country. He is obviously an ideal fit for a service like Seero.
This one is worth watching. At this point, there is a lot of development ahead of Seero. Plus, it has the potential to turn into one of those cool, but useless things on the Internet. But, again, we shall see. There was a time when we would have though a service like UStream was dumb.
