With the 2012 Summer Olympics upon us, many are gearing up to watch the spectacle across the globe and The Associated Press will be there with their new Robotic Olympic Cameras to catch all the action.

Developed by Fabrizio Bensch and Pawel Kopczynski, these 11 high-tech cameras will be in London to capture the most trickiest of shots. The new underwater camera will be used during the swimming and diving events and this year the photographs will come from new angles never seen before. Unlike the previous Olympic games where the cameras were retrieved after each event and then uploaded and edited, this year the new Robotic Olympic Cameras will instantly upload each photo as it happens.

The rigs were designed to catch every angle of the Olympic games and the video that The Associated Press put out shows you just how those amazing photographed are captured with their Robotic Olympic Cameras. Stats for Olympic Robo Cams Trending: Older & Popular
