A 1.8 Gigapixel camera that captures everything you do from 20,000 feet above and it can zoom, to where it can actually see a person moving.

This is perfect to capture a crime being committed, or a car chase being chased by police, just like everything else in the new century everything we have seen in movies is becoming reality now days.

This could only be imagined in movies but now its the real deal all thanks to technology and really smart people
