And it's incredibly unlikely one would expect someone's webcam feed would contain their RSA key. I'm guessing someone just dropped the camera on a desk without realizing it was on... Meanwhile I was at a Googler's place a year ago and watched him tap a U2F device on the side of his laptop to complete the second factor. If you work for Microsoft (I do) that doesn't sound right.

Microsoft employees get a smart card and if your machine has a TPM chip you can create a virtual smart card accessed with a pin or biometric factor like fingerprint or Windows Hello.

If your payroll system has a web interface, you can have an applicative firewall in front replay your stored credentials as a hacky SSO (after checking your identity another way, of course).
The volume of stuff being slung at us every day seems to push our capacity for awareness to its limits.
And thanks to the feverish competition for that awareness, we've become only too aware of the phrase "raising awareness" and the attention-grabbing activities attached to it – the Ice Bucket Challenge being a notable recent example.
But just when you thought you were incapable of further awareness, look!
UVC web cameras that DO work on a Mac don't come bundled with any OSX webcam software to control or adjust the image brightness or color.
