I was impressed at what the digital CMOS sensor-based camera made by the parent company can do: it's got a 360-degree panoramic view. But that's not used in the Ferret--that one is a CCD sensor-based camera with (apparently) a 90-degree angle, which is still pretty wide.

Great idea! The new airport skirt cam! Fun for parties too. They're expected to be on the wish list of every college dorm security guard. Get your orders in early.

It looks a lot like an iRobot in terms of its aesthetic design. Not only are these robots perfect for scouting under cars and through parking lots, but what about malls, schools, or other public venues where there are long stretches of terrain to patrol.

Ann, this looks very familiar. Didn't iRobot (or someone else?) also have a military robot for checking under cars?

This robot makes a lot of sense, Ann, far superior to the mirrors previously used. Clever idea to increase security surveillance.

Patrolling parking lots

Very cool. Should be a staple for airport security, patrolling parking lots and other public venues if it really is effective. That would definitely ensure a higher level of safety.
