R2-D2-like robot eye being used to check out criminals

Baltimore Sun article on a popular new law enforcement gadget — an all-black, ball-shaped camera that swivels 360 degrees like R2-D2 in Star Wars.

The Eye Ball R1 is the size of a softball and is often launched through a window or rolled on the floor to help tactical officers see around corners or behind walls. The camera automatically rights itself when it stops rolling and, day or night, beams back audio and video to a hand-held color screen.
