Don’t worry the duck is not real! As techies, we love messing around with gadgets so an opportunity like this one really fits the bill!
The reason for all this fun is so we can relay live footage from one of the plastic ducks at this year’s Staines-Upon-Thames Duck race, which takes place on Sunday 25th June. Our Computer Care Duck Cam will be linked through to a phone which will be streaming the footage through the Staines Upon Thames Day Facebook page:
To propel the duck, a tiny power boat will be fitted to the underside of the plastic toy. This will be controlled remotely by Computer Care’s Tony Fry who will be in the nearby support boat.
That’s the theory! We have visions of Duck Cam spending more time bobbing up and down under water than afloat so we shall see! It should be a good event anyway. Hopefully we should have all our ducks lined up in a row on the day!
