It was reported in the Los Angeles Times this week that Libyan rebels used mini drones during their march on Tripoli to gather intel on Kadafi's forces. Similar drones were said to be used by the United States earlier this summer to monitor Bin Ladens' compound. These drones have been used mainly for military reasons, but this technology could be a new way to gather video/photo documentation for legal cases in a fast and effective way.
Potentially prohibitive costs aside, think about how easy it would be to gather a 360 degree video of a building involved in a lawsuit, or a take geographical photos of a crime scene stretching many miles long, and not only that, the lead lawyer and experts could monitor the whole process on a preview screen live. These drones could be a new way to collect evidence and investigate new angles of a case (literally). New technologies like this drone could open up doors to persuade the jury and take them on a journey without ever having to leave the jury box.
