USB Digital Video rocket camera

What could be better then launching objects via your USB port? It doesn’t always have to be foam darts aimed at your co-workers either. This rocket is made by Estes, the famous makers of model rockets for the last 50 years or so and it comes ready to fly. What you get is a view of the rocket’s liftoff and flight from the rocket’s point of view. That’s because it has an impact-resistant digital camera in the nose cone.

It can reach as high as 300 feet and the onboard camera can record a 12-second video at 640 x 480 pixel resolution. The other option is to take up to three pictures per flight.(It can store 15). Just connect it to your PC with the USB cable to download the flight video.

For propulsion, it uses Estes C6-5 engines and comes with a launch pad, software, and two sets of L1154 button-cell batteries. The price is not sky high at $59.95.
