It’s always nice to be able to spy on your pets and kids when you’re not at home. This panning cam is a sort of mix between a nanny cam and a security system. While it looks big, it’s actually pretty small: about 4 inches to each side.
The Mimamori Z001 masquerades as some kind of helmet, but in actuality it was made for pet owners to keep an eye on their four-legged friends while they are at work. The camera pans 35 degrees to the right and let, as well as 40 degrees up and 5 degrees down.
It captures image stills in VGA quality (640×480) and video (176×144). Stills are great, but if those are really the specs, the video quality is ridiculously low resolution. The cam can be remotely triggered by a text message. There are no details on pricing, but it will be available in Japan in December. It won’t be long before you’ll be able to turn your home into the Big Brother House.
