Due to the weightlessness of ISS, the Int-Ball can slowly float around while still taking still pictures and recording video clips. The robot can able be control from the control center on Earth, that also receive whatever is filmed in real time.

The idea of Int-Ball is that it will film crew and other on ISS to free up time for the crew. Since, according to JAXA, about 10 percent of the crew’s time is occupied by photographing and documenting what happens on board the space station.
