There's nothing worse for a spy than being busted just because the voice recorder pen can't be used when the villain tries to sign a check. Which is probably why this lighter/video camera combination might work better--at least you can light a cigarette when you're feeling nervous.
The Lighter DVR from Ajoka is perfect for any Bond wannabe. It records VGA-quality (640x480-pixel) color videos with sound, and the battery can last up to six hours. The microSD slot accepts cards up to 8GB, which gives approximately eight hours of footage. The microphone and lens are hidden along the front of the lighter, which has a torch and eagle motif.
At the bottom of the device are the USB port, media card slot, on/off switch, and record button. Although they may not be located in the most inconspicuous place, the camera's still discreet enough--provided you don't fumble and give the game away.
The price isn't listed on Ajoka's site, but Engadget reports that the Lighter DVR is retailing on the company's Web site for $150 apiece.
