It's a nice idea, since nobody suspects something as basic as an electrical socket might be spying on them. But what in the hell kind of communist socket is that?
Here in America, sockets look like little surprised faces without noses, so this weird combination/Chinese socket would probably arouse more suspicion than a camera hidden in a tie or a pair of glasses or whatever. It captures video at 648x480 resolution as well as audio onto a microSD card, and can be mounted just about anywhere. Anywhere, that is, where they use whatever kind of outlet this is. It's available now for $US64. [Brando via Crunchgear]
