Car key spy cam takes car keying to a whole new level

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

These spy cameras are getting better, smaller and cheaper as each day goes by. Besided mounting them on a radio controlled vehicle, the practical use of these devices always seem to be a bit shady, but that doesn’t make them less awesome for us gadget freaks. The latest Sound Activated Car Key Mini Camera Mini DV Support 16 TF Card (Black) is especially hard to identify as a camera and records video in 720×480 with 30 frames per second. Like many other spycams, this is probably upscaled from 640×480, but video quality is still quite impressive for a gadget that costs only $17.77/€13.97 with free worldwide shipping. Expect more videos of things people don’t want to have recorded to hit the net soon. Video made by a similar cam after the break.

Spy Gadget Week – #1: Old-Fashioned Cassette Telephone Recorder

Monday, August 17th, 2009

The number one spy gadget remains the good ol’ telephone recorder. This one still uses cassette tapes to record the conversations. In this era of digital audio formats, nobody has a device that plays tapes anymore. Except you, the spy. Just don’t forget to rewind the tape before you call somebody.

Spy Gadget Week – #2: Wall Listening Ninja Spy Device

Monday, August 17th, 2009

While devices to see through walls aren’t available to the masses, this Wall Listening Ninja Spy Device is. This product is made exclusively for ninja spies and penetrates 20cm concrete walls. Charge the device, plug in your headphones and you know exactly what people on the other side of the wall are talking about. Just like you should as a spy.

Spy Gadget Week – #4: GSM Cell Phone Watch

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

Spies don’t call their GSM Spy Bug using a Nokia 3310, they need a more elegant device. Something that doesn’t scream ‘HEY, DON’T WORRY I’M JUST CALLING MY GSM SPY BUG’ and matches their black dinner jackets. This Mind Blowing Cell Phone Watch in Stainless Steel (yes, that’s really what our friends from Chinavasion named it) seems to be up to the task. Besides the obvious phone functionality, this cell phone watch has a camera, a 1.5″ touchscreen, a mini SD-slot and supports GPRS web browsing, MP4 playback and Bluetooth connectivity. Quite impressive for a device that fits on your wrist and only costs $145.63/€102.43. Unfortunately, this watch doesn’t come a built in laser cutter or remote detonater, although you probably don’t have a license to kill either. Video after the break.

Spy Gadget Week – #5: GSM Spy Bug

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

Have you ever seen a movie where the spy hides an audio transmitter and there are at least five people in a van outside controlling all the computers to receive the signal? Those days are over. You don’t need those people and the van anymore. Nowadays, you just buy the GSM Spy Bug for a measly $26.56/€18.75 – yes, it’s that cheap to spy on people these days. All you got to do is pop in a SIM card,  plug in the battery or the power supply,  turn it on, leave it somewhere and call the number. That’s it. You’ll hear everything within a 5 meter radius of the device. Just keep in mind that you’re a spy. You really don’t want to know what your partner says about you when you’re not around.

Spy Gadget Week – #6: Portable Night Vision Scope With Infrared

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

There are only few things on earth a spy should trust and the Giant Panda isn’t one of them. These bears are notorious for stealing your bamboo, especially if you can’t see them in the dark. Luckily the Portable Night Vision Scope($212.75/€150.05) comes to the rescue. If you ever trained using a realistic first person spy simulator, like Duke Nukem 3D, you already know the importance of night vision scopes. For those who don’t, there’s a top secret video of the device in action after the break.

Spy Gadget Week – #7: Wireless Spy Necktie Camera

Monday, August 10th, 2009

This week, it’s Spy Gadget Week. Find out which 7 gadgets are best to get started on your top secret mission.

Spy cams are a dime a dozen these days, but most of the cams just aren’t up to the task of top secret spy work. Most common are those cams disguised as a pen. Problem is, who still uses pen and paper in this era of wireless multi-touchscreen keyboard devices? Nobody. So the last time I saw somebody grabbing his pen, I quickly landed a right hook the jaw. Ain’t nobody spying on me, kid.

Another spycam is disguised as a pink lighter. Besides the fact that no spy wants to be seen with such a cheap looking lighter, what will you do if somebody asks you to light a cigarette? Bad idea.

Then, there is this Belt Buckle Spy Camera. This shouldn’t even be called a spy cam. Real spies don’t film crotches, perverts do.

So finally, I came across this Wireless Spy Necktie Camera with Portable Receiver. I wasn’t really convinced by the Necktie Camera ultil I saw that photo. You just know that guy isn’t a spy. But he is. And that’s what spying is all about.

Find out tomorrow which spy device takes up spot number 6.

They will tell you to throw the $1 lighter away or want
to try it for themselves. Bad idea.
