The AP Plans to Use Robotic Cameras for Olympic Coverage
The Associated Press isn’t just sending photographers, photo editors and video journalists to the Olympics. They’re also booting up the robots.
Via the AP:

Remote-controlled robotic cameras at the swimming, weightlifting and diving venues will provide alternative angles, including under water, to supplement AP’s regular photo coverage. In addition to a selection of hand-placed remote cameras at a several other venues, such as those for gymnastics, track and field, AP photographers will use the latest Canon 1DX cameras and take advantage of new workflows and technology to move more photos faster than ever before.  

Being the remote operator would be a fun gig. — Michael
