So we returned from CES this year with around 180GBs of USB flash drives, mostly from press kits and the like. But now paranoia has me suspiciously eyeing that bag of drives, wondering which ones might be recording my conversations, since a few of them look exactly like this little invasion of privacy. It’s got 2GB of internal memory, but more importantly, a built-in mic capable of recording any and all audio in a 16-foot radius at the flick of a switch.
It captures directly to WAV files giving you about 4 1/2 hours of continuous recording, and of course charging the drive and/or recovering the recordings is accomplished by connecting it to your PC via the USB connector. It’s not the most elaborate piece of spygear we’ve ever covered, but to be honest I think it’s one that people will least suspect. And it’s just $19.99 available from Amazon.
