Added DiffLines:

* The USA has this option in two flavors in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals''. One is bound to a vehicle and increases sight range while detecting invisible enemies, the other is a General power that makes one circle over a certain area indefinitely, like an infinite Spy Satellite power. The latter is cloaked, the former isn't, and both can be shot down by anything that can target air units (the vehicle-bound kind also dies out if the parent vehicle is destroyed.

* The Android Saga of ''DragonBall Z'' revealed that Red Ribbon Army scientist Dr Gero had insect-sized robots monitoring the heroes for years, studying their techniques so his Androids would know exactly how to beat them. Another, possibly separate, robot was collecting DNA samples so he could create Cell.

* One of these (called a "Public Eye") appears near the beginning of Creator/RobertAHeinlein's novel ''Literature/{{Friday}}''. It's used by police to detect crimes in progress.
* Creator/LarryNiven's short story "[[Literature/KnownSpace Cloak of Anarchy]]" had the Copseye, which was used to monitor Free Parks. It also had a stunner to knock out those breaking the Parks' sole rule: don't hurt others.
* ''Literature/{{Uglies}}'': Aya has one of these named Moggle that she treats like a pet.
* The optic probe device used by the Martians in ''Literature/TheWarOfTheWorlds'' - the book and all movies - roughly fills this trope.
* In ''Literature/HeartOfSteel'', Shark Reef Isle has a number of these patrolling the island lair of super-villain Alistair Mechanus, variously resembling insects or floating balls.

* Micro Air Vehicles are being designed for the army.
* There was, for a time, a plan to develop softball-sized robots of this type for use on the International Space Station. They would be capable of moving about on their own by using ducted fans to produce thrust. Since the ISS is in a microgravity environment, they would effectively be capable of flying around the station in adherence to the spirit of the trope. Likely served as the inspiration for the SGU Kinos mentioned above.
* The Air Hogs Hawk-eye is the civilian version, you can even post your findings online.
* The AR Drone from Parrot has the same capabilities and carries both nose and belly cameras.
** It spawned an entire family of small helicopter drones (factory- or enthusiast-built) driven by an iPhone or {{Android}} device.
