Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No – it’s the terrifying new flying robot that it set to replace the CCTV camera.

The Aeryon Scout is equipped with the world’s most sophisticated intelligence systems to track down criminals and spy on the public.

Users simply point to a place on Google Maps on its touch-screen controller and the robot flies there at 30mph to record high quality video that can be beamed to an iPhone in real-time.

The Scout can go up to 500ft above the ground and can zoom in to a close-up from a 300metres away, meaning it may not even be seen while on a mission.

The four rotor blades also ensure it is practically silent when hovering.

According to Aeryon, the Scout has the ‘most sophisticated and highest quality aerial intelligence available today’.

It beams its pictures to any electronic device, be it a remote computer or even an iPhone.

The Scout and its laptop-style control panel fits into a suitcase so it can be deployed easily over any crowd and carried away covertly.

One of the most ingenious features is that the camera is self-correcting, so even if you are flying along at speed it will stay locked on the target.

In a video posted on the Aeryon website, the £30,000 ($50,000) robot hovers at a great distance from a car thief who is being caught in the act.

When the camera zooms in, the suspect’s face can be clearly seen, enabling police to get a better idea of his identity.

The Scout also has potential uses for the military and general surveillance missions.

In today’s world, instant access to high-quality aerial intelligence is a requirement in the field, not a luxury,’ write Aeryon on their website.

‘It can be the difference between mission success or mission failure, or in some cases, lives saved versus lives lost.

‘The Aeryon Scout instantly provides aerial intelligence to where it’s needed – to the people in the field.

‘With a touch screen interface and a system that snaps together in seconds, any soldier, officer or civilian is capable of gathering professional quality aerial intelligence within minutes.’

Canada-based Aeryon is currently seeking permits to fly the Scout in the U.S. and has already spoken to a number of law enforcement and security agencies.
