Motorola Wireless Camera HMW1010 (http://rbi.ims.ca/4919-547). Added to a home monitoring and control system, this wireless camera provides real-time viewing for both inside and outside the home. Since it is wireless, installation is simplified and the units allow viewing in otherwise wiring-inaccessible locations. The camera captures still and video images and sends them or a text message alert to a cell phone or e-mail. Alternatively, the images are stored on a hard drive for later viewing. The full-color camera has built-in motion detection and a microphone to transmit sound. The HMVC3050, a Day/Night version captures color still images and video in low light conditions — even in the dark.

NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
