SF Drabble #260 “Lifecasting”

She got out of bed, went to start the coffeemaker, mindful to stay where the cameras could clearly what she was doing. The only place in the ship’s lifesystem not completely covered by POV was the head; only the mirror over the sink had a camera.

How much of the interest was scientific and how much was prurient she didn’t particularly care.
