From BBC: "The cameras used for a documentary on polar bears were designed to be as unobtrusive and resilient as possible.

Polar Bear: Spy on The Ice used hi-tech "spy cams" to get as close as possible to the bears during summer in the Arctic islands of Svalbard.

But while they were built to withstand temperatures as low as -40C, in the end most could not cope with the curiosity displayed by their subjects."

Mmmmmm, smells like hoomans. Wonder if these are like those bigger white domes. Crunchy on the outside, but chewy on the inside...

It's interesting how robot cameras have no consciences concerning tossing their children behind them as a distraction to escape bears.

This is why we will ultimately lose the war against our powerful robot overlords.

not if we'll have an army of trained polar bears.

That was no decoy, that was just robot poop.
