Eye Ball R1 Remote Surveillance Camera
Remington’s Eye Ball R1 is a compact wireless 360° mobile display system. It can be used in tactical operations where law enforcement personnel need to see the situation before entering a building, floor or room. The Eye Ball R1 is tough enough to allow officers to roll, toss, lower or throw it as needed. It transmits streaming video and audio to a Personal Display Unit (PDU) up to two hundred yards away.

The Eye Ball R1 has these great features:
The Eye Ball R1 is controlled remotely by the Personal Display Unit with a 6.4 inch color screen (one PDU can controll up to two Eye Ball R1s. Interested in accessories? You can get a lowering wire pouch and a ground spike along with all the regular stuff.
- Omni-directional camera
- Near infrared illumination up to 9 yards
- Captures video up to 25 yards and audio to 5 yards
- Transmits streaming video up to 200 yeards away
- rotates 4 RPM & can be directed toward a specific
target, capturing a 55° horizontal & 41° vertical field of view
- Two hour battery life.
It is useful in a variety of situations:
I've chosen copseyes, from Larry Niven's 1972 story Cloak of Anarchy to compare with this device. It's purpose was quite similar; to provide a remote way to "eyeball" a situation.
- Ceiling or attic investigation:
The Eye Ball R1 can
quickly be attached to
a pole providing visibility
into ceilings and attics.
capability is essential for night or dark
- Clearing corners and hallways
The Eye Ball R1 is the
perfect tool for looking
around corners, down hallways, or into rooms
keeping your team out of harm's way.
- Clearing stairwells:
The Eye Ball R1 can be
attached to a lowering wire,
allowing you to clear
stairwells as your team
I'm also wondering if the folks at Remington might want to team up with the makers of the Rotundus robot, a self-powered spherical bot perfect for remote surveillance work.
