GPS and cameras on rats
  [vote for,

Ok, maybe on dogs, whatever.

Each unit is a camera with position/orientation sensor and GPS unit, plus wireless transmitter, on a collar mounted on a rat. Or a dog. Or better still, lots of rats and dogs. Fuck it, why not trained pigeons or something. Oh yeah, and solar-powered.

Anyway. A central really-clever-computer processes all the views (together with position/orientation) and reconstructs a real-time, 3D view of the area of observation (nuclear power station, Fort Knox, my house) and lets you fly around it on the net.

Yes, silly I know.

       Someone's trying out something like this with roaches.

       Except that people tend to kill roaches, which could be expensive. I guess they kill rats as well, if they're unassertive enough (the rats I mean). Pigeons are maybe better.
