A miniature flying camera that looks like a hummingbird. Like a gadget sampled from a James Bond movie. Imagine Q handing over this little bird to Bond in the opening scenes – and Bond later use the radio wired flying miniature bird that can sustain flights for 11 min, fly forward at 11 mph and even hover, both to spy on his enemies as well as peaking Tom, checking out the Bond-girls undressing.
