Home-made grenade launcher digital camera

Firefly is a digital camera designed to be fired into the air by a grenade launcher and then descend by parachute, taking photos as it goes down. Its developers originally marketed it to the military to provide intelligence to soldiers on the ground. Although the military has already developed throwable camera balls and grenade-style cameras, Firefly is being presented as a less expensive option because it is manufactured from off-the-shelf components and can be fired by a flare gun instead of a grenade launcher. It could also possibly be used in civilian markets, such as by police and search-and-rescue workers to cover heavily wooded or otherwise inaccessible areas.
