I've had this idea for a while, and haven't heard of any doing this yet. Why aren't data center events like maintenance and emergency trouble shooting documented with Helmet Cams?
I saw this article in PopSci that shows a helmet cam on a Dutch Marine boarding a German ship occupied by Somali Pirates.
Video: Dutch Marine's Helmetcam Delivers Thrilling First-Person-Shooter View of Raid on Pirate-Seized Ship
Does this herald a future where commanders get real-time intel from their warfighters' helmets?
Video gamers and warfighters alike will appreciate this stunning first-person-shooter view of a Dutch marine boarding team taking back a German merchant ship from Somali pirates. It's not hard to imagine many more soldiers of the future equipped with cameras so that commanders can have multiple on-the-ground views of rapid response operations carried out in real-time.
The marines were tasked with liberating 15 crewmen aboard the German merchant ship Taipan, which had been hijacked by 10 Somali pirates. The crew locked themselves securely within a safe room and called for assistance, according to a reader translation provided by the blogSNAFU.
If you don't want to put it on safety helmet, you can get one for your wrist for $99.
I'll take this blog entry and send it on to a few people I know and maybe we can see if some one in the data center industry will give this idea a try.
Imagine what a remote team could do to help troubleshoot a data center problem.
commanders can have multiple on-the-ground views of rapid response operations carried out in real-time.
Makes so much sense, but I can think of many reasons why this is not a bottom up approach as there are few data center operators who want their work documented. So, it will take an executive who doesn't actually go into data centers to give the order to document mission critical work.
