You know something? The Israelis really seem to be into this concept: take a camera, toss it in the action, see what happens.
First, they came out with a rugged ball shaped spycam. Now this! It’s called the Firefly, and it’s made by Rafael Land Systems. It can be launched up to 600m from an M16’s underslung grenade launcher, by any non specially-trained soldiers. The “ballistic camera” will then lob in the air, all the while taking video and transmitting back to ground operators’ PDAs.
Once it reaches the ground, it, well it smashes up.
Useful, if you’re into that war stuff.
