1. Spy Shoes


The shoe’s transmitter, microphone, and batteries were imbedded in the heel of the target’s shoe. A maid or valet with access to the individual’s clothing would be given the job of planting the rigged shoes and activating the transmitter by pulling out a white pin from the heel. The target would then become a walking radio station, transmitting all conversations to a nearby monitoring post.

2. The Kremlin Spy Watch

This watch doubles as a camera and video recorder, capturing high-resolution images and videos. The stainless steel finish makes it the perfect luxury watch as well as being waterproof. The Kremlin isn’t just great looking, it also functions as a motion detection watch and a PC camera, making it an ideal accomplice even if you’re not there.

3. Jakks Pacific EyeClops Night Vision

If you’re ever snooping about in the dark, this is a must. A knob on the right side activates an LED light, letting you see further into the dark. If the green-colored night vision starts giving you a headache, there’s even a switch on the bottom of the right eye piece that toggles your view from green to black and white.

4. StarChase Tracker

This is definitely useful for a secret agent, but also for your average everyday Garda as well. To help prevent dangerous police chases, StarChase developed a system that is capable of aiming a laser at the back of a vehicle and firing a projectile that contains a GPS receiver, wireless transmitter, and battery. This, in turn, tracks a vehicle’s whereabouts and sends it to a dispatch centre, hopefully creating a safer way to catch criminals.

5. The Spycatcher Extreme Hovercraft

With a unique specification the Extreme is designed to appeal to the most discerning customers. Travelling effortlessly over land, water, sand, ice or snow, the Spycatcher Extreme comes with a powerful 50BHP four stroke engine allowing you to travel at speeds of up to 45 mph whilst being economical to run, and with low noise levels. It does cost £26,400 though, so make sure you get the spy job before investing in one?

Does Blackberry’s open letter have a return address?

Tomorrow, Blackberry will release a letter to media outletss worldwide. When I got news of this tonight, I stumbled mentally for a moment. I thought it reminiscent of the "There is life after Apple" Chiat/Day letter from Steve Jobs in the Wall Street Journal 25 years ago. For a minute I allowed techno-romance to gnaw at me, but only for a minute.
