Top Secret: Bond-style pen-sized DVR launched
Your pen, if you choose to buy it...
If, like us, you were disappointed by the lack of cool gadgets in Quantum of Solace, you can relive the memories of Bond’s better device-laden days with the SpyPen.
Become Bond with SpyPen
It may look like a normal ballpoint, but SpyPen actually incorporates a digital video recorder. Which should come in handy for covertly capturing videos of the sultry MI6 agent Strawberry Fields, as she escorts you onto the next plane back to London.
Q Marlin has also put a “super sensitive” microphone inside which can record sound from up to 4.6m away. And do try to return it in one piece.
The 30g pen comes in either a 2GB or 4GB capacity model and although we would've hoped for fuel-cell power as it’s more futuristic, you’ll have to settle for USB instead. Would-be spies will have to be in and out within two hours though, or the lithium-ion battery will go flat.
Marlin’s SpyPen is available now, with the 2GB model priced at £60 ($100/€85) and the 4GB model at £70 ($110/€95). This story will self-destruct, if not properly stored...
Just one question
Can it put ink on paper? If not, that's a dead giveaway, like a "cell phone" that can't make a call. I'm sure they could fit in two hours worth of ink in that thing, though.
