Great idea and execution. There're a lot of things we can learn via biomimicry!

Mounting something that small you likely can lose several prototypes and several bugs before a success.

 

Beagles, and Dachsunds would be better for spying on yuppies for example.

Drones for journalism are pretty much already here. With a pretty decent quality camera equipped quad copter purchasable for a little over a thousand dollars, most news organizations can find room in the budget.

Max - "Little Brother" I think you're right. Government tries to spy, but doesn't really have a great track record at a lot of things. Private Industry will be the really risk to to privacy and freedoms. There isn't always enough over site within the corporate world to prevent abuse of data.

The drone cockroaches is a pretty intriguing idea. I don't have a lot of experience with them so I don't really know if they give me the heebee jeebes, but it's a cool idea regardless.

Hi Rich -- I tend to agree -- I think the future will be filled with robitic bumble bees and the like

 

I don't think the real problem is going to be big government spying on us -- I think it will be our "friends" and neighbors...

From the ground and the air, pretty soon well be overrun flying and crawling cameras. Beyond the interesting technology, it's pretty fascinating what this will do to our society, not all of bad of course. Drones are being used for science and journalism, also to protect your po I read this short article in Scientific American (Dec. 2012) called "Drones at Home." Scientists tracking organutans in Sumatra created their own drone with open-source Arduino hardware for less than $2000--the drone flew a route and sent back detailed data. See the journalism story here:

I suspect it's only a matter of time before we create fully robotic versions of these creatures, eliminating the need to exploit their living counterparts.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
