Budding Bonds offered disguised spycam

The lighter touch...

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Attention all Bond enthusiasts! Asian gadget seller Brando is now selling Disposable Lighter Spy Camera Camcorders at just $20 (£14) a pop.

Hidden beneath this seemingly ordinary ciggie lighter is a pinhole camera and microphone which captures Motion JPEG video at 720 x 480, 30f/s in an AVI file. There's an additional still photo option, capturing images at 1280 x 1024.

The top of the lighter detaches to reveal a USB plug to download your content to a computer, without the hassle of drivers or additional cables.

Video can be shot automatically when over 60dB of sound is detected, storing the content on a Micro SDHC memory card hidden alongside the USB connector.

The battery is rechargeable, making this device not such a disposable lighter after all, yet one that will still light up rooms - so to speak - when passed round your social circle.
