Specialty Advertising in C-Stores
It appears the mini-blimp indoor theme and concept is making significant headway. We have seen them in the halls of Congress sniffing for anthrax. What else can we use them for? C-Stores can use Mini Blimps Advertising and Surveillance to prevent Shoplifting. These can be paid for by beer vendors, soda vendors as advertising signs, which float around the store like a pool sweeper around the family pool. It does not have to be a blimp shape, it could very well be any shape such as a giant banana or a football?
Costs paid can be fully paid by the vendors and advertisers. Mini camera equipment can be installed to prevent shoplifting. Perhaps even the new technology of video cell phone projectors can be incorporated where a commercial can be played on the glass of the refrigerator glass cabinets in the store for the purchaser, or perhaps a warning that they must have proper idea to buy anything in this section? These blimps can run on the power of small solar cells on the top of the blimp running from the lights like a solar powered calculator? Or, if that technology is unavailable or not sufficient enough a set of batteries, which are trickle charged off the solar cells, to keep the ion lithium batteries charged. Many universities have been doing maneuverability studies on mini blimps ever sense the Homeland Security made these things more viable with the trend towards indoor bio-safety sensors.
Maneuverability studies show these are very viable and with the nano robotics available the mini-blimp might drop suggestive coupons to the purchaser. Mini-blimps and payload dropping or coupon dropping is well within these devices capabilities.
