Bonham's 'Virtual Square'

BONHAM, Tex. -- All the action on the Bonham downtown square can now be seen from the comfort of your own home thanks to modern technology.

A new device which allows anyone to take a look at the southeast corner of the square, ‘Bonham Cam’ was introduced this week.

The camera was installed by the technology company Tyrosys in order to promote this past weekend’s heritage festival held in Bonham,. It runs on a 7-second delay for PC users and about a 15-second delay for Mac users.

Developers say it is one of the best ways to showcase their city to the world.

"What we like it for is that you can get a real flavor for what the square is all about. These are heritage buildings. It just feels different from a lot of the suburbs you'll see." said Tyrosys president & CEO Bill Chapman.

If you would like to see what’s going on out there right now, you can go to www.bonhamcam.com (link) to see the live feed.

    weather looks good, I`m back visiting in September, hope it`s better than when I was there last November. Why is no one else writing?, am I the only person that uses this site?

    I visited Bonham recently, it`s nice to be able to revisit the square by webcam, who knows I may see my brother who lives there drive by. It looks sunnier there today than here in England.

    We're wide awake! Please allow about a half minute for the "cache" to load - please try again - averaging 716 visitors a day, some as far away as Norway, Sweden and England! Well over a quarter million hits already within our first ten days.

    Tried it out this morning and was a blank / black screen. I hope Bonham is awake by 6:45 AM
