Does anybody remember back to the line of toys that we had as kids (might still) that touted they were “spy gear”? There was the stupid pen that was three times the size of a normal pen that claimed you could hold it up and hear any conversation up to 25 feet away. There was the glasses that had mirrors built into the sides so you could see the playground bully sneaking up on you right before he beat you into a pulp and took your lunch money. All of these little toy gadgets were fun as kids but they didn’t work at all (or had zero practical application to your adolescent spy world). We grew up and became obsessed with other gadgets like our smartphones and amazing sports cars (minivans to all of you chumps that just threw in the towel). There is something to be said about those classic “spy gadgets” of yesterday and how we now have the technology available to make them work (you thought you were going to get a $6 Million Dollar Man reference there, huh?).
Swann has always been known for their advanced security devices and systems so we weren’t surprised when they came out with the awesome HD RemoteCam. This RemoteCam is exactly what it says it is and makes what looks like a remote start key turn into a 720P HD hidden camera. It also has the ability to take individual jpgs if needed as well when you see that one moment and can’t get to your phone in time. The most important thing is that you will be able to discretely record things (or people) and not raise any suspicion. Everybody now knows that cell phones will capture audio, pictures, and video but they wouldn’t think twice about the RemoteCam. We have all been harassed by an overzealous cop at some point or another and now there is a way to discretely catch it on film. Once you’re ready to transfer it, you simply plug into it via USB and voila! you have an instant viral video ready to go. Click here for image source and where to buy.
