The United States is buying a new polaroid camera that costs a cool $100 million and will be deployed to an Arizona wildlife preserve.
The Polaroid Landsat-7 is a camera with an eight megapixel resolution, which can be used to take images of the vast landscape and other objects at a distance.
The $100-million purchase of the land surveillance system, dubbed Polaroid Land Camera, will allow scientists to survey the land on an area of about 1,000 square miles (2,800 square kilometers), about half the size of San Francisco, in Arizona.
The company has received approval from the National Science Foundation to use $100,000 of the $100.7-million appropriated by Congress for research and development purposes.
It will also be used for training.
