The Eye Ball R1 is a compact, wireless 360-degee mobile display system, designed to be used in tactical operations where police officers need to see the situation before entering a building, floor or room.

The surveillance device is rugged enough to roll, toss, lower or throw it, as situations demand.
The Eye Ball R1, from US-based ODF Optronics, gradually scans the scene to cover 360-degrees, transmitting the image and audio from the scene in real-time, via wireless communication to a remote and mobile display unit.

Each sensor is packed in a hand-held durable ball, which is designed to be thrown into remote and potentially dangerous locations, without exposing the operators to the danger. The Eye Ball can sustain shocks and vibrations as well as other harsh environmental conditions.

The device transmits streaming video and audio to a personal display unit (PDU) that enables display of the image received from the Eye Ball, as well as control of the rotation direction of the sensor. Advanced versions include automatic video motion detection on the monitor.

The Eye Ball R1 can also be attached to a pole, providing visibility into ceilings and attics, and its near-infrared capability allows for for night or poor visibility operations.
