Angry Robot

bug cam

In All Tomorrow’s Parties, one of William Gibson’s characters has a remote-controlled hover-camera rig. I thought it would be cool to imagine a version of this in miniature, the size of a bug. Celebrities would then attract swarms of them; the journo-bugs would buzz around them, jockeying for a good angle, their microphones barking out questions. The Sean Penn thing to do would be to swat them away. Or possibly spray them with something.
