Lets face it, this will technology will be used mainly for voyeurism. It's mostly clunky and large now, but when the tech evolves and you can have something the size of a rat or roach then all our privacy will be gone.

Miniature UAVs already exist, and DARPA is working hard to make
them the size of flies. Autonomy is a different ball game though.

When it comes to general monitoring devices, privacy is long gone.
Then again, what is privacy? Do we have any when half the population
are constantly snapping pics every which way, and Google is trying
to scan in the whole planet?...

The Robivie-PC is just a toy, for the moment, albeit an expensive one.

Ian.

Well, I hope the video is not showing the robot's full potential, because if it is if don't know why on earth it needs an Atom running at 1,6 ghz built in. A 300 mhz Arm processor from three years ago would probably do just fine.

Hell, a few Picaxes would probably run it just fine.

As soon as I'm doing something wrong, I'll start whining about my privacy.

For now I'll just say... Sweet. But the price is obviously too much.

Price is pretty high for a toy you can't do much with.
But for a prototype it's pretty affordable!
