Founded by a handful of Sonoma County entrepreneurs, the app, BarSpace, and its related Website, BarSpace.tv, employ a simple concept: Install cameras in bars and nightclubs and then streams that video live through a free iPhone app, as well as through the company's Website.
LIVE Bar Cam
The cameras are installed and paid for by BarSpace; each bar decided the hours between which they'd like to transmit a video stream.
It's ostensibly designed so users can check out the scene at a bar while still at home. Your favorite dive too crowded? Maybe there's an open table somewhere else. Still, we feel a little creeped out by the entire concept -- especially when we saw how many bars in San Francisco are already streaming live drunks.
