The exterior of this thing says American patriotism and freedom (thanks to the physically powerful arm of Lady Liberty and the All American eagle) but its insides tell a story of stealth and espionage. As the diagram depicts, it’s an iddy biddy eagle eye camera. You’ve probably noticed the microphone too. And if you’re somehow hesitant as to what sits at the top of it all – it’s a lighter, as indicated by the futile use of the word ‘fire’. So it’s a cigarette lighter/camera – I bet you never thought you’d need one of those. And you probably don’t, but I now have the impulsive urge to possess a lighter with video capabilities.
Perhaps you suspect your friends are trying to steal your cigarettes, or chocolate digestives and you want the truth, damn it. Espionage has never been so easy. I’m sure I don’t needs to tell you, but for those who aren’t good with diagrams, it has a microSD slot (expandable up to 8GB) and a USB port for charging. What is not obvious from the picture is that it records 640 x 480 or QVGA in AVI format at 30 fps.
Engadget says: “Your local spy shop can order these wholesale for $150 USD a piece”. So, if you happen to have a local spy shop (??) you’re in luck.[via Engadget]
