From Amaryllo comes this wireless 1080P, auto-tracking PTZ with free Cloud Storage.
Claiming a beefy CPU to provide real-time tracking like no other cam...
Here's the blurb:
With multiple motion sensors, no matter where the intruders appear in your home, iCamPRO can immediately rotate itself to capture the intruders in seconds. Real-time object tracking is an expensive technology that is available only in military or professional surveillance systems. Amaryllo is the first company to realize it with a compact design for your home or office at an affordable price.
Amaryllo is also the first company to offer free cloud storage to consumers. Through the application, you can link your Google Drive with your camera. Although the video is stored in your drive, you can manage and access them right through the app. This saves you time and energy when searching for your video.
Here's the video:
$150 now thru kickstarter and shipping in May, supposedly.
FWIW Amaryllo is no stranger to IP camera firsts. For instance this unit, available today at Fry's, is possibly the most colorful and patriotic IP camera out there, at any price! It simply has no competition in the Rubik's Cube Camera form factor category, a situation unlikely to change...
Feeling no love for the iCamPro, eh? Are you familiar with it's predecessor, iCam360 HD, shipping now? (Shown above in U.S. patriotic, other colors/nationalities available.)
Could give your precious Dropcam a run for its money, no?

Product was not initially suggested by me
please add more
I'm not suggesting that the 360 cam's advantages clearly outweigh Dropcam's, and I may be missing some from both columns, but it's a worthy opponent, I believe.
Aside: if the "us in the hoi polloi" remark was meant to exclude myself, may I remind you that the term "hoi polloi" is functionally defined as "people who can't define the term hoi polloi", so therefore the statement self-negates.
