Saw this at Brookstone. I'm pretty anti-stationary cameras inside the house, but to have a camera that could be controlled remotely when I need it would be cool. This operates using an iPad, and I'm not sure if you have to be inside the house to use it.

I'm able to grab my Android phone and view outside cameras, turn on and off lights and play music. To remotely power up a remote controlled car with a camera attached to it and surveil the house would be awesome...

It is cool but it's not clear if you can connect to when you are away from home, couldn't find a manual to clarify, but the statement "It generates its own Wi-Fi wireless connection for your smart device (no frequency interference" leads me to believe it is it's own wireless access point. Which would be a real shame, since it sounds like it has all the hardware it needs to be a cool little remote monitoring solution...

Or go home made like mine. Night-Vision with a BB Gun on it, 200mw transmitter! Not only can you drive around you can shoot things!

It is using a remote control for an Airplane, so it has a trainer port, so you can control over the internet if you want.
