Microdrones is selling a 2-foot wide unmanned aerial vehicle equipped with a high-resolution video surveillance equipment and infrared night vision capability. This mini-spy helicopter is already being used by police overseas.
The latest model, costing $60,000, can fly for 20 minutes at a time, follow instructions linked to GPS coordinates, and transmits a color image to its operator who can operate the craft in real-time. It can also fly high enough to remain unseen and unheard.
