8GB Camera Watch Gives You Time To Spy
Want to look snappy while stealthily acquiring industrial secrets? If so, the CVSL-I21 Spy Camera Watch is just the ticket!
As a watch its... well a watch. Made of high grade stainless steel with a glass face, it is designed to provide accurate time. The neato aspect is the inclusion of a tiny camera in the watch's face:
To record video, simply hold down a button and wait for a tiny green LED to indicate that recording has begun. Images are recorded in 1600 x 1200 resolution at 20 frames-per-second in AVI format. The one channel built-in microphone records audio at 8000Hz, 64 kb/s at a range of 1 - 2 meters away from the source. All of this is stored on an 8GB internal memory card.
The built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery can be recharged via your computer's USB port, which is also used to transfer your video to your computer. Supported Operating Systems include Windows 7, Windows 98, 2000, XP, Vista (32 bit only), Mac OS X+, and Linux 2.4.2.
While I don't see myself ever stealing industrial secrets, I can see using this little watch to record interviews. In the video that follows, however, I see how easy it would be to end out in a law suit for invasion of privacy. Watch how this guy slides from booth to booth, recording all the while:
