Since the middle of January some 800 visits have been made to the camera’s website. The camera updates the picture every ten minutes but older pictures can be seen in the archive.

The Otaniemi campus is changing fast and Väre is one of the biggest construction sites in Otaniemi. The goal is that the building will be ready in 2017 and that the School of Arts and Design will move in in 2018.

The camera was installed in October 2015 on the third floor of Otakaari 1. The idea of the camera came from Risto Nieminen, the Dean of the School of Science.

- I believe that these pictures will be enjoyed by all at Aalto University. I think the chance to follow the constructions will also interest people from outside of the university. The camera will also give material for future historians, Nieminen said in October.

There is also a time lapse video available on the site. With the help of that, one can view back on a summer day in Otaniemi, for example.
