Eye In The Sky on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital August 15 – See If You Can Spot The Hidden Camera… Stealthiest Camera Gadgets
Gavin Hood’s Eye in the Sky, released on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download from 15th August, is a film that will excite and captivate the imagination of any person that has a slight passion for drones or robotics.
Starring Helen Mirren as Colonel Katherine Powell, Aaron Paul as drone pilot Steve Watts and the late Alan Rickman as Lieutenant General Frank Benson, Gavin Hood’s Eye in the Sky is one of the most tense and thought-provoking action thrillers of the year.
Inspired by the scene in the film in which we see undercover field agent Jama Farah (Barkhad Abdi from Captain Phillips) uncover a potential planned terror threat through the use of a ‘hummingbird nano UAV’, we take a look at some of the most cool, innovative undercover cameras out on the market, as well as droids that are used both in everyday life and for military purposes.
