I read an article about those smartchips a while ago(too long ago to be able to find it again :( ) �In the army a few years back I was part of a test-unit during a testing peroid called "force-21" �among the gear we tested was a camera mounted on an M-16, which would relay the signal to an eyepiece worn on the helmet, the major benifit being you can fire around corners without exposing yourself (was wierd being able to shoot from the hip with near the same accuracy as auctially being in a comfortable firing position. �There was also talk of being able to link these to special radio/laptops that the communications (RTO) guy would carry, which could in turn transmit it to other places. � And you thought "COPS" was cool imagine watching a live, real-time firefight on CNN through the perspective of the soldiers.
Man, sometimes I really miss the army. Just sometimes though.
