Remote-control tank has on-board camera for all-terrain snooping

Snooping just took a giant leap with the R/C ATV-360, whose Borg-like LCD display and audio-monitoring earpiece let spies see and hear everything from its remote vantage point. The 10-inch vehicle's tank tracks let it traverse rough terrain, spinning around 360 degrees on your command. If you want to keep your distance, it can be controlled from 75 feet away.

This is a $150 toy, but we're thinking somebody is going to attach a Taser to this thing and turn it into a ground-based Predator drone. Might be great for lazy security guards, if they can afford the dozen AA batteries it requires. If an enterprising inventor could just figure out how to make this baby invisible with silent running, it could actually be dangerous.
