    At UAT, we have a christmas tree sitting in our lobby, which off course was fake, but had lights attached. A couple of students and a professor took some basic components and put together a Christmas tree that could be controlled over the internet. You as the viewer can turn it on, off, or scroll the lights. We have two web-cams pointed at it, and you can see the effect it has.

    I was part of the project, and thought i'd share:

    http://uatree.0x58.com/ or http://168.158.222.131/ . Have fun playing with it.

    I know you can play with the cameras remotely over the web at UAT so that could be it

    Yup. I can't do anything about it if they are not pointing correctly. Eventhough people seem to be leaving them alone right now.

    It is broken at the moment, the BASIC 2 sx chip that is attached to the PINK module is not responding.

    You can play with the lights but you can't move the camera.

    There are a total of 6 cameras at UAT. All 6 of them are web accessible using the link: http://cam [ # ] .uat.edu/

    and then clicking Single. The cam's up on that webpage are cam's 1 and 2, at http://cam1.uat.edu/ and http://cam2.uat.edu/ . The other camera's are hung in the building at different places for different purposes. There is one in the green room, the theater, small commons, and also one outside for viewing the Dorm building project.

    Ehm, Private school. UAT receives no government funding at all. We can have a christmas tree all we want.
