Wireless surveilance system..

Hi, all, this is a bit of a random night post, but, i need your help...i need a cheap way to make a surveilance system.. 

I have a CCTV camera module that looks like that, and no, it's not wireless, doesn't have a receiver. It only has Audio/Video cables and a power cable. Is there a cheap way to make this work using bluetooth? I only need to spy from 5 meters away. Btw, i want to be able to receive the video from my laptop.

Interfacing yor robot to your PC using Gobetwino (can work with any MCU)

I am currently working on a project where I need to teach my robot to "see" using an ultrasound sensor. In particular it must find and collect drink cans on a playfield and return them to a specific location.

To make the programming easier I wanted to take the sensor output from the robot and display it on the computer as a chart. As I am a terrible programmer I did a quick google search and came up with Gobetwino.

Ipad vs. Laptop

   A few days ago my trusty laptop died.  This laptop was my main computer for years and it was always great for what I needed it to do.  I used it for browsing the net, programming, music, itunes, etc. and it was used hard and a lot.  I went threw many chargers for it and currently the battery holds no charge at all so it was getting close to the time to start shopping again.
