Comments on Eye-bot Lands On Your Ceiling
Yes, look up - what's that? A ceiling fan you didn't know you had? No, it's a surveillance drone with excellent autonomous capabilities. With video. Smile for the camera! (Read the complete story)

"It's also a pretty good match for the floater camera used in Michael Crichton's 1985 film Runaway, which showcases a number of innovative technological ideas.

In the movie, the device can fly both outside and indoors; in the film, it is used in a hostage situation. Read more about the floater camera; don't miss the cool in-dash video screen and controller for the device."

"That thing's not gonna sneak up on anybody with that incredibly loud motor; techno-spies will have to wait for the quieter model."

"I was kind of thinking about that myself - but if it perches on the ceiling before you get there, it can wait until you leave to buzz off."

"On the other hand, if you got the buzzing noise down, you might mistake it for an insect noise. As is the case with the Raymond Z. Gallun's scarab beetle robot:
'The Scarab rubbed its hind legs together, as flies will do when at rest. Then, apparently satisfied that it was in condition, it unfolded the coleoptera-like plates over its wings. With a buzz that any uninformed person would have mistaken for that of a beetle, it started out on its journey.'"
