With the launch of a new James Bond exhibition at the Barbican Centre in London that celebrates the myriad of gadgets the suave spy has had to play with over the last 50 years, we're taking a look at some of the latest spy gadgets on the market.
Spy Video Watch, £69, prezzybox.com
The Spy Video Watch is literally indistinguishable from a normal swanky watch, but the crucial difference is that you can craftily record video and take photos thanks to the almost-invisible camera hidden in the number 2 of the watch face!
Spy Camera Pen, £39.99, spycameracctv.com
This Spy Camera is also disguised as a fully-functioning pen so you really can be the 007! A tiny built in camera lens is situated above the pen clip, hard to see even with the keenest eye. If you want to record while you are walking about simply place the pen in your front pocket and record everything in front of you in full colour. And with a small microphone on the pen this also records sound! When you want to upload your videos and clear them from the memory of the pen, simply connect it to your computer with the USB connector.
