A recent YouTube video demonstrates a wireless robotic platform, dubbed Minibot, installing Cat 6 communication cable above a drop ceiling. Especially intended for building inspection, security/surveillance and wire installation applications, the compact, lightweight robot was developed by a company called Inspector Bots. The Minibot employs a fixed, front-facing camera that sends a live video feed back to an operator, who remotely controls the speed and direction of the nimble four-wheeled unit -- which has "the ability to turn on a dime," according to its inventors.
