Humble Aeryon Scout UAV will take a picture of that bald spot you're hiding

The Aeryon Scout is an aerial surveillance vehicle that can take sneaky shots thanks to the camera fixed to its underside. It's a simple machine: it's remote controlled and has four rotors housed by foam casings that'll keep it aloft to take a peek where people can't. Its builders at Aeryon Labs from Ottawa, Canada hope that the UAV will be attractive for law enforcement applications or have a place with the military. It's cheap, too, at only $30,000 or $50,000.

While not the most robust UAV design we've seen, perhaps the Scout will be able to find a niche if it can't unseat the sturdier machines, such as inspecting power lines or the roof integrity of buildings.
