Spycatcher sunglasses – For trendy spies

Chris Scott Barr - Sep 7, 2007

These days oversized sunglasses seem to be popular among the ladies. I personally like to see some of a girl’s face when I look at her, rather than bug-eyed glasses, but whatever floats their boat. Next time you see a girl wearing a pair of these giant sunglasses, be cautious of what you say and do, she might be recording everything.

Spycatcher has just released a pair of sunglasses that have a built-in wireless camera. The camera transmits data to a pocketed PVR which then stores the video on removable SD cards. It records in either NTSC or PAL with resolutions of 510×492 and 500×582 respectively. While that’s not the greatest resolution in the world, it’s not bad for being tucked inside a pair of sunglasses.

I’m sure that every single pair of these will get to good use catching thieves and other wrong-doers. So if you’re a good Samaritan, or you just like to record people without their knowledge or consent you can pick up a pair for $1,400.
