Great MAST Technology Tool - Serious Potential

Devices come and go so quickly it is often hard to pick one up, learn about it, and then find how to exploit the ties it has to our curriculum and for learning in general (student and adult).  Case in point, I have been looking at and researching Flip video cameras.  I found another model, the Kodak Playsport HD, that has some higher rankings and a great bonus for MAST projects - waterproof up to 10 feet!  Imagine shots while snorkeling, videos attached to an ROV, shots of mangrove roots systems teeming with aquatic life!  There are a lot of possibilities.

Chime in and let us know what you might think and if you have a Kodak or Flip, let us know how you have used it and how it might connect to the things we do at MAST.
