Yes, Mr. Bernstein is one to watch, I figure. His inventive nature is so refreshing. He and his team are taking a good idea and making it great by expounding on it with an open interface that encourages others to follow along. I would encourage him, and those who aspire to be like him, to continually reinvent themselves every few years; to continue to invent and lead -- for the money, sure -- but mostly, to entice us all toward a playful and productive future, and inspire others to do the same.

This is indeed quite interesting, and I wonder about what the business plan is. A remote controlled ball has quite a lot of potential, especially depending on size. I can see all sorts of possibilities for a whole lot of uses in security and defense. Of course, there are a lot of fun applications as well. Consider the current configuration with a video camera sending back images of what it sees, and an IR video camera to make it useful in the dark.
