"UGLY"??!! Hmmpphh! I'll have you know that I am very fond of these creatures! Laughing

It's a face only a mother could love, perhaps, but I have raised many of these. Very Happy

Oops!!...Okay..... This BEAUTIFUL creature (snicker!!) Laughing Laughing It is definitely a face only a mother could love. Laughing Where is Lord V when I need him to identify something, he is so good at this...then I just agree with his findings....that way I am never wrong. Laughing Oh, I know what it is, but I am not going to say so that I can give someone else a chance to reply....(believe this and you'll believe anything) Laughing

I see a pair of lenses on each side, must be some sort of new wide angle camera; minituarized and disguised for covert operations.

I am totally befuddled, Rik. Knowing that you raised these comely creatures I will express my awe at such a beauteous (?) display. I'm glad you mentioned it was a mask. I might have guessed the other end. Wink

Have a Happy New Year.

Well, I see bits and pieces of the correct answer in these various postings.

Can anybody put them together? Cool

PS. Tony, have you seen this beast: http://www.immersivemedia.com/products/products.php?pageID=72 ? It's the camera system used to capture spherical video for Google's Streetview displays. Covert and miniaturized it's not, but maybe a step in the right direction? Smile

I'm not sure how to answer the question, Tony.

It is miniaturized, it is disguised for covert operations, and it is a wide angle camera system of sorts. But radio, umm, not that I know of. Laughing
