DARPA is looking for ways to peak inside a building w/o being seen.

So, they have commissioned a bird that has flapping wings.

All of this under self contained power, video, and remote control.

That's not cool... it's another spy tool that the PTB's can use on us.

Incredible adjustment, but apart from using it to spy on people I just can't think of any real use for it. Kids will probably love it as a toy, but it will probably last about 5 minutes before hitting a wall.

I think the only real use will be military or maybe a scientist wanting to look at a bird's nest w/o scaring off the mother bird.

John that gives me a vision.

The little hummingbird thingy flies up next to a nest and this big mama bird comes out and tries to make lunch of the intruder.
