This is really scary! Just wait 'til you local police get ahold of these things. Do you really think they'll wait for a warrant before peeking in your back window? Private individuals can already buy miniature helicopters with remote control and video. If I see one hovering in my back yard, I'll reach from my shotgut. But how am I supposed to know if that humming bird is real or not? If I shoot at every humming bird I see, I'll go to the pokey for sure.

How are we supposed to defend our privacy, now? And how long will it be before the fly on the wall is transmitting both audio and video?

It looks like it's a lot easier to grab or shoot than a real humming bird
Net that thing and re-program it, that would be pretty awesome to control one from your computer. S&F Thanks!

The proverbial fly on the wall will never be the same.

I worked for a company which was/is involved in some of the R&D for MAV's for the DOD. Specifically "Energy Harvesting for Small Air Vehicles". I was given this concept video back in 2008 so that just goes to show that the DOD has been funding this project and others like it for years. It's actually pretty neat for an electronics nerd like me but at the same time the video shows the intentions of the project which could truly change modern warfare to a new level. Enjoy.
