Lady Liberty is getting high-tech gifts for her 125th birthday: Internet-connected cameras on her torch that will let viewers gaze out at New York Harbor and read the tablet in her hands or see visitors on the grounds below.

The “lighting” of the so-called torch cams is one of many events planned for Friday’s ceremony to commemorate the Statue of Liberty’s dedication on Oct 28, 1886.

Internet users will have a 180-degree view. They’ll be able to watch as ships go by in the harbor and observe construction at the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan.

The day also will be marked by a water flotilla and a reading by actress Sigourney Weaver of the poem by Emma Lazarus that helped bring the statue renown as the “Mother of Exiles.”
