spy-tie-01.jpg As its name suggests, the Spy Tie is a tie that comes with a hidden spy camera. Mind you, its video quality is better than you probably expected: 768 x 492 for up to 65 minutes (1GB SD) or 280 minutes (4GB SD).

The tie set comes with a small cigarette box-sized recorder with a 2.4-inch LCD screen for viewing purposes. You can have it begin recording video by manually turning it on, or automatically at a scheduled time or via its motion sensor. It’s a pity that its battery life is merely 60 minutes, not enough for filling anything larger than a 1GB card in one charge.

What’s really not cool is its price though: ??645.00 (~US$1,268)!
