Rather than messing around trying to disguise a hidden camera as a button hole or tie, one enterprising Chinese manufacturer decided to take advantage of something we’re pretty used to seeing pinned to people’s chests: Apple’s iPod shuffle. The “Mini MP3 Cam DVR” is an old-shape shuffle lookalike packed with a 1.3-megapixel video camera, TF slot and rechargeable battery.
Once triggered, the dinky spy cam starts recording 640 x 480 20fps AVI video or, alternatively, grabbing JPEG snapshots. These can be pulled off via a USB connection. No sign of a US distributor, but pricing is certainly at the budget end of things: $15-3 a piece.
