Spycam Key Fob

Post a Comment

Admit it, you’ve daydreamed about being James Bond, maybe even practiced saying “the names Bond, James Bond” but with your name instead of Bonds.  There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be an international man of mystery who speaks every language on the planet and can stop a ruthless organization from destroying the world while still leaving time for the ladies.

If your spy game needs a little help than let me suggest the Spycam key fob camera from ThinkGeek.  This tiny little camera is disguised as a key fob so you can film anyone anywhere inconspicuously.  You may not need to snap pictures of a nuclear missile silo somewhere in the Middle East but what about the next time you’re at Wal-Mart and you see the perfect candidate for People of Walmart.  It’s rude to pull out your phone and point it at someone but no one would ever suspect a key fob.

Let me add a quick legal disclaimer here, you should look into the legality of secretly filming people without their permission before doing so.  Now let’s look at what this bad boy can do.  It shoots video at a resolution of 640×480 which is not high definition but it’s the same clarity most videos on Youtube are shown.  It has 4GB of storage which will allow you to film roughly 4 hours of video, more than enough for the part time covert agent.

It captures color video with sound and you can see the quality of the video here.  The spycam has a convenient USB plug which allows you to quickly upload videos to your computer in .avi format.  That means you can go from neighborhood secret agent to Youtube sensation in about 3 mouse clicks, no difficult software required.

I just want to reiterate that although this thing is really cool you need to look into your local privacy laws before you set off on any new secret missions.  You may also want to check out this sweet spy watch before you go off to save the world.
