Researchers Developing Grenade-like Surveillance Camera
A new “grenade” camera could be used to help keep soldiers on the battlefield safer
The “I-Ball” camera has an internal camera that offers a full 360 degree view of the entire area, and provides high-quality images filmed in real-time video, according to researchers. It is able to transmit wireless content immediately after being launched into a hostile environment, even while it’s in mid-air.
Image sensors and two fish-eye lenses inside the I-Ball help provide images and videos, with all collected data turned into a 360 degree image after being remapped using Field Programmable Gate Array.
