IDF Displays Its Hi-Tech Gadgetry

Ad Feedback - JERUSALEM, Israel - Israelis have an opportunity to see some of the hi-tech gadgetry and state-of-the-art weaponry helping the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) to do its job well.

At a base in the south, the IDF displayed some of its newest acquisitions, some of which were used during the three-week military operation in the Gaza Strip.

One amazing gadget, the "Eyeball," is a cylindrical audiovisual surveillance camera, slightly larger than a baseball, which proved invaluable in the Gaza incursion.

The versatile camera can be tossed into any area, mounted on a pole or lowered into a tunnel.

ODF Optronics, headquartered in Tel Aviv, developed the Eyeball.

ODF also produced the Eyedrive, a remote-controlled robotic four-wheeler, which provides troops with audio and video surveillance in all directions.

The tough little robot can navigate stairs and be flipped back on its wheels if it flips over.

Other state-of-the-art products on display include the U.S.-manufactured HTR 2000 rifle, with a 1,000-meter YARD range, which can be used with a night-vision scope.
