You’ve probably seen the James Bond and Mission Impossible movies and wondered, is all that cool spy equipment that they use real? Well, you’ll be amazed to find out that much of it actually is! Spy pens, video glasses, GPS trackers, and much more. Check out all of the REAL spy equipment gear below:
Video Spy Pens
These little devices look just like a regular pen, but actually have a built-in hidden camera inside! They also have internal memory where the video is stored. To record, you usually just either click a button on the top of the pen, or press the pen clip, and the spy pen springs to action! Some pens are even capable of recording high definition video!
This piece of spy equipment is ultra cool! Spy sunglasses look like everyday sunglasses, but with one small twist – they are capable of recording everything that you see! The nice thing about spy sunglasses is that you don’t have to aim any special devices wherever you want to record video. All you have to do is look at it, and you’ll record what you see! The more advanced models of spy sunglasses also have a wireless remote, so you can secretly start/stop recording. Checkout spy equipment for more info.
This one you might have heard of, but you might not know how advanced they actually are! GPS Trackers like the SleuthGear Live GPS Trackers are an essential part of any spy equipment arsenal. The main purpose of these devices is to transmit your location. This information can be viewed usually from a standard web browser, and sometimes even your smartphone! Not only can you find out location, but also speed, direction, and even set up “safe zones”, which will allow you to be alerted if your vehicle enters or leaves one of these zones. If you don’t need real-time driving data, the iTrail GPS Logger can also be used as a historical tracking device.
An audio bug is a secret device that records audio, sometimes recording it internally to a recording device, and other times transmitting it live, also known as “eavesdropping”. These audio bug devices can be placed in everything from pens, to flash drives, to even everyday items like clocks. In most states, audio bugs are not allowed unless both parties consent to the recording. So while these products do exist, make sure you check with all state and federal laws before using one, and make sure to get consent from all parties involved in the recording just to be safe.
