Web-cam on Mt Everest Mobotix photoProving that no place on Earth is safe from the ever-gazing eye of the Internet, researchers have installed a webcam pointed at the 29,000-foot peak of Mount Everest.

A high-definition Mobotix camera, powered by a single solar panel, smashed the previous record holder for “world’s highest webcam” by a full kilometer, residing at a dizzying 18,618 feet above sea level.

The technology will function in temperatures as low as minus 22F degrees.
