    Pretty cool from a tech standpoint, but I see limited practical use for this.

  6. Could use it in a concert when you cant get a good shot, just be sure to catch it lol. its fall/winter here where I live, id like to toss it over the trees as high as I can, get a good shot of the top view. maybe strapping it to a remote control heli. or a nice sling shot strait up, gotta bring a baseballmit for that
