Robotic cameras at Olympics

2012-07-27 09:20

Watch this video to find out how amazing unique photographs will be captured at the Olympics. A series of remote-controlled robotic cameras will cover the swimming, weightlifting and diving competitions.

London - There will be monarchs, presidents, prime ministers — and David Beckham. Friday's opening ceremony for the London Olympics is an A-list affair.

Among the 60 000 spectators at Olympic Stadium will be Queen Elizabeth II — who as British head of state will officially open the games — along with royals including Prince William and his wife Kate, and Prince Harry.

The British government says more than 80 heads of state and government will be in the audience, including royalty from Brunei, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Spain and Sweden.

The US will be represented by first lady Michelle Obama and Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney will also attend.

Beckham, who helped bring the games to London, will be there — and the show will end with a performance by Paul McCartney.
