In this article I will be sharing some of the best free web cams to watch to help you and your boredom. There are many type of web cams (nearly 2000 on Justin.tv alone) but I have chosen a few that should be interesting enough to keep your attention.

Watching Animals

The first of the animal cams I have to share is the puppy cam.  Come on, who doesn’t like to watch cute puppies running around making us laugh?  Check out this puppy for a few minutes: Shiba Inu Puppy Cam

If you aren’t a lover of all things puppy, you can watch the goats instead.  True, they eat clothes but they also give us milk and cheese.  Watch them frolic for a bit: Goats Live

Goats don’t get your goat?  The webcam at the North American Bear Center may be the place for you.  Watch long enough and see if one of the three resident bears decide to drop by for a visit: North American Bear Center Web Cam

Who knew they had penguins in Dublin?  Apparently they do at the zoo.  Oh, and they decided to install a free web cam to watch for all of our enjoyment.  Watch them for a bit of penguin antics: Live Penguin Cam

You can only take watching penguins for so long, right?  Switch to watching roaches… up close.  Even though you have to refresh the page to get the image updated, watching these disgusting bugs could keep your attention until the next task of the day calls: Roach Cam

Watching other people.

The next two cameras allow you to watch people as they enjoy food and drink from within coffee joints.  Share a cup from your own computer, virtually.

Check out the Northtown Coffee House.  From the webcam you can watch as drinks are prepared and customers are waited upon.  Now don’t you wish you were in line? Northtown Coffee House Web Cam

Miscellaneous Cams.

Some people… I just don’t know.  This guy decided to fill his house (and yards) with webcams.  I am not sure why but it does make for some entertainment. Watch this guy’s house as his kids play in the living room, the table is set in the dining room, meals are prepared in the kitchen, and more.

Get your geek on and watch Chris Pirillo’s live webcam.  Chris likes to keep his camera running 24×7, even when he’s not in the room.  The chatroom is usually filled with some sort of geeky conversation.  When he is there, you may catch him recording YouTube videos and stuff.  Good for geeks.

I’ve always been into the whole 24/7 live cam thing when it’s more Truman Show show-esque (like the original Justin.TV when it was just him a camera on his head)

Best thing I’ve found so far is Frank Taylor who works from home and thus runs an official lifecast from his couch. Occasionally he’ll wear a helmet cam and go for a bike ride or something, but most of the time its just him sitting there chatting.

STILL waiting for there to be a full 24/7 365 like Justin Kan did originally.
