This Spy Camera Looks Like A Sony Alarm Clock and Radio

Posted in Spy Gear by Conner Flynn on July 21st, 2011

This spy camera is scary because it looks just like a Sony alarm clock. In fact, I have the Sony model that it is imitating in my home. I hope no one has been spying. This hidden camera records 720p HD videos in MPEG4 format and stores them on an SD card (16GB provided).

It will give you a time and date stamp and is motion activated. I don’t think that anyone would even suspect it was more than a clock, especially when it functions as a regular alarm clock/radio when it isn’t spying. It will cost you $329.89.

Looxcie wearable camcorder looks like a Bluetooth headset

Posted in Spy Gear by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2011

Wearable camcorders are nothing new, neither are wearable spy cameras. This one is disguised as a Bluetooth headset. It is called the Looxcie 2. This sequel to the original is half the size and sheds some weight as well.

The two versions of the Looxcie 2 that are available are 4GB and 8GB capacities. They can record videos at resolutions of 320 or 480. Rumor is that it may also support iCloud. The 4GB version will give you five hours of recording for $180, while the 8GB one will give you ten hours for $199.

These Spy glasses shoot HD video

Posted in Spy Gear by Conner Flynn on May 4th, 2011

Want to take some secret video of someone while looking like Clark Kent? Here’s your ticket. These spy glasses should keep your video shooting nice and discrete. The video is captured at 720p HD quality and at 30fps. It has a handy ‘on’ button to start recording and you are good to go.

These glasses also pack in about 4GB of storage and you get a 1-year warranty. Just $110. Have fun explaining why you suddenly need glasses and why you chose this pair. And why you don’t always seem to need them.

Japanese Spy Camera looks like a cat

Posted in Spy Gear by Conner Flynn on March 7th, 2011

This weird looking Japanese cat is actually a spy camera. The camera is called the Necono Digital Camera. Ideally a spy camera should not stand out, yet this odd cat completely stands out. Maybe people will just think it is an odd figurine as you record them.

The camera has a 3MP sensor and can shoot both VGA video and still shots. The camera measures 100 x 30 x 30mm and weighs 40G. Apparently the buttons for activating the shutter are on the cats butt and the lens is in the cat’s eye.

Here’s something for the nerdy James Bond who needs to crunch numbers while spying on those around you. Or maybe you just want to protect your office cubicle when you’re not there. The calculator spy cam looks like a Casio desk calculator with large buttons.

It’s fully functional with a pinhole on the side. The camera can capture VGA recording (640 X 480 resolution) at 30 frames per second for about an hour and a half using its 4 GB of built-in memory.

If you need to get the dirt on churchgoing folk or a local cult, why not infiltrate them and get the goods with this Cross Spy Camera? There’s like a million crosses in church, who’s gonna know. And if God wasn’t ok with it you would already be struck down right?

This comes from the good folks over at Chinavasion. There’s a camcorder hidden inside. They call it “Ingenious and fashionable”. Comes with 4GB internal memory and can likely burn vampires like a standard cross.

Spy Peephole Reverser

Posted in Spy Gear by Conner Flynn on February 11th, 2010

So you go to someones house or apartment and knock on the door, but they take forever to answer. What are they doing? Just what is going on in there? Maybe they are pacing back and forth because they don’t want to talk to you. There’s no way to know. Or is there?

The Spy Peephole Reverser will turn the tables on this situation, allowing you to see right into the house via the peephole. You might see some weird stuff though. I mean, maybe they are cleaning up a dead body or maybe granny was walking around naked and is dressing. Be careful. Some things can’t be unseen.

Spycam Lighter Camera

Posted in Spy Gear by Conner Flynn on December 8th, 2009

Spycam Lighter CameraThere are so many items that could be spying on us today and we might never know. This one is a video camera disguised as a standard classic style lighter. The only problem with a spy gadget like this is illustrated below.

“Say, you don’t smoke do you?”
“Nope”
“Then why do you have that lighter there on your desk?”
“Oh I just started.”
“I see. Why do you keep pointing it at me while we talk?”
“I’m just fidgety like that”
“When I walked in, it was on the floor. Then you picked it up and positioned it-. Nevermind. I’m being paranoid.”
“What you think this is a camera? You think I’m after some upskirt pics? You’re silly. Anyway, where were we?”

Spy Camera in a tissue box

Spy Camera in a tissue boxDamn, paranoids and perverts sure have a ton of ways to spy on you these days, but putting a spy camera in a tissue box somehow seems creepier than most of the spy gadgets we feature here. Maybe because it looks extra innocent.

Looks are deceiving. Inside there is a camera that takes color footage during the day and black and white footage at night at a resolution of 720×480 at 30fps. It uses SD cards to store your footage, and can be programmed to activate automatically at a certain time.

Coke can Spy Cam actually looks real

Posted in Spy Gear by Conner Flynn on November 1st, 2009

Coke can Spy Cam actually looks realWe’ve seen our share of spy gadgets, but the problem has always been that most objects do not resemble the real thing and so are useless. This one on the other hand looks just like a real Coke can and so should fool just about anyone.

These fake Coke cans have a camera and DVR built inside. It even goes so far as to have a fake bottom that can be removed to reveal the USB port and on-off switch. Not good enough for you? How about a remote control so that it can be started and stopped from a distance.
