…At least that’s the impression one gets from the picture of the guy wearing it, on the product site. Apparently the Tie Spy makes you wear dark sunglasses and pretend you are a G-Man. A G-Man with a tacky tie who stands out like…Well, like an overly happy dork with a surveillance device in his tie.
They claim that the camera in this tie is the world’s smallest color pinhole camera. But then again they also claim that this tie is fashionable. You can record exactly what you see while wearing it. No external power is needed, since it just connects directly with an included MP4 player. Some of the specs on the MP4 player include: 512MB Memory with the ability to get 1GB using an SD card. 2.5 Inch TFT OLED display, with a resolution of 320×240. Even with the MP4 player thrown in, this tie still probably won’t make you feel like James Bond. Who knows, you might get some dirt on a co-worker, but more likely you’ll just collect videos of your walk to work. From your tie’s point of view of course. This kind of excitement will cost you about $150.
