Flee is your Aerial Spy Camera

July 15, 2008


Turkish designer Hakan Bogazpinar came up with this digital camera concept called Flee that is basically a NERF football with a lens so you can see what your receiver looks like right before an epic play or an epic fumble.

The idea is the camera is implanted in the core of the foam ball at the head of the projectile.  This way, it’s protected on the front by the foam and from the rear by the foam and the shuttlecock-like tail.  Then, through Bluetooth, it sends the pics immediately to your phone.

It travels the arc of your throw and takes pictures at predetermined intervals. And, from the pics, it appears that you can even orient the camera backwards and frame yourself in the tail of it waving bye-bye to a touchdown spiral.
