I saw a ad for something in Home Depot that was interesting. It was something along the lines of a wire with a camera built in it and a display attached to it. The camera was suppose to be put through the wall to find whatever.

Does anyone know the name of it? I'm looking for one.

Trying to justify purchasing one. How do you rate it, Ron?

It's useful in certain circumstances. An insulated wall restricts the visual.
Very good to check for wires and pipes in the wall. I use it to check for termite damage and other insect activity as well as water damage.
Home Depot put them on clearance, so for $99.97 I picked one up. I had a fiberoptic version you looked through like a telescope, but the camera is nicer.
