Love the way it captures video - one frame per revolution...

Similar concept presented back in 2006: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2006/09/25/phantom_sentinel/

So, it sounds like its taking pictures at a high frame rate as it rotates? Because he says you can see in 360 degrees... Really interesting. I think that\'d be great for surveillance. I would think the military would be very interested in this, especially since its so light and portable, and also easy to launch.

How would this system operate with 2 single rotor contra rotating blades? Could a gondola be hung on the bottom to carry a person with-out it spining around?

Reminds me of a miniature UFO.

@es - Yeah, I don\'t get the big deal. The company behind the one you cited has everything this one has, including the 360 high-speed video, plus it has pattents! I don\'t see that the tech discussed in this article is in anyway innovative. More so, just re-application or reverse-engineered with slight reduction of scalable size from 2 ft to 1.5 ft. This article video and another video where the builder is interviewed present this as new technology. From what I have just learned, it isn\'t.
