Recently, BBC found that some their remote-controlled, robotic cameras has been destroyed. And guess who? It’s a polar bear! How funny, isn’t it? To explore the life of the polar bears they installed the spy-cameras.
These were remote-controlled, robotic little R2-D2 cameras whose were doing man’s job there. But it didn’t work out too well as the bears didn’t seem to become buddies with the robots, playfully destroying some of them too.
You can check out a video of them in action after the jump.
According to BBC:
The cameras used for a documentary on polar bears were designed to be as unobtrusive and resilient as possible.
Polar Bear: Spy on The Ice used hi-tech “spy cams” to get as close as possible to the bears during summer in the Arctic islands of Svalbard.
But while they were built to withstand temperatures as low as -40C, in the end most could not cope with the curiosity displayed by their subjects.
