A webcam is a digital camera that can typically stream video and audio to the web (useful for remote participation in IndieWebCamps and virtual Homebrew Website Club meetups) either as a peripheral connected (via USB, Bluetooth) to a computer, or as a standalone device directly connected to the internet by wifi (AKA IoT webcam), though the latter tend to be vulnerable to attack.
