Bounce Imaging Tactical Camera

This thing is cool.  The Bounce Image Tactical Throwable Camera would be a nice device for a team to use.  It uses white or near-infrared (850nm wavelength) LED’s to light up the area while it snaps panoramic still photos that can be immediately accessed via an Android or iOS phone.  The 360 degree photo array, from six monochrome cameras, updates once per second.  The unit will run on its internal batteries for 30 minutes at full flash intensity.  It is MIL-STD 810 drop-tested for durability.  The model used in the video, the Explorer Tactical Edition, costs about $2,500.00.

Don’t diss the questionable tactics in the video, they’re only for demonstration purposes…

As technology advances, more and more robotic and drone devices will become integrated into our high-risk responses for officer safety.  Keep the ideas coming, I say!

    Cool piece of kit, check out the Remington Technologies EyeBall R1, they had that design out back in 2005. Although the wrist-mounted screen was unavailable at the time, that is a great upgrade to the design. Orlando PD SWAT got some really good use out of theirs.
