Be your own Bond with a Science Museum Spy Pen

The latest James Bond film, Skyfall, opens at cinemas on 26 October. But why should 007 have all the espionage-based fun?

Get yourself along to the Science Museum shop, and you can do your own bit for the well-being of the nation (cough) with this miniature camera, disguised as a fully working pen.

“If you need a spy camera that’s body mounted, there’s nothing easier or more discreet than just putting this pen camcorder in a shirt pocket for a full view of everything you see in front of you,” says Triple M (that’s short for ‘museum marketing manager’). “Just clip it to your pocket and walk around somewhere that you want to film, or leave it in place to record a face-to-face conversation.”

The Spy Pen (£50) has 2GB of internal memory and will store up to 15 hours of video footage (640 by 480 pixels – according to our intelligence reports) while recording audio as a 128kbps PCM file. A concealed USB connector enables you to recharge the device and transfer files to a laptop. And – yes! – you can actually use it for writing letters to megalomaniac villains too. Basildon Bond meets James Bond in one gadget, you could say.

“If you’re in a tight spot or time is crucial, you could have a covert recording made, then attached to an email or uploaded to the internet within minutes,” advises our Top Level Briefing Dossier. Which we have subsequently shredded for security purposes.

Geeks of a certain age will undoubtedly remember when the Rubik’s Cube craze (or Magic Cube as it was originally known) spread through school playgrounds in the early 1980s. Building on the current popularity of all things retro, this Rubik’s Cube Speaker will bring back memories of success or frustration depending on whether you were able to solve the puzzle or not. The Cube speaker uses the USB connector for power and the 3.5 mm jack for the audio, so there’s no batteries or power adaptor required. Unsurprisingly the speaker is NOT a functioning Rubik’s Cube but you can try and impress your friends by saying that you solved it…until they spot the cables.

Stickems are the handy and fashionable way of maintaining clean screens, free from fingerprints, grease and makeup. Made from ultra fine microfibre technology, Stickems are designed to be used over and over again – and best of all they stick directly to your product, so they can’t go missing…

Everyone has a gadget with a glass screen that needs to be kept clean – be it iPod, laptop, TV, iPad, mobile phone or camera. If, like me, you end up just rubbing your thumb over the screen to clean it, or use your clothing as to wipe of any smears, you’ll know that this is not the best solution – and in some cases can cause the screen to be scratched over time.

Now, with the introduction of Stickems, you can have a handy, portable cloth at your disposal all the time. Stickems are small clothes which you can rub over your screen and, when you’re done the reverse side has a self-cling back that allows you to stick it to the back of your gadget – so you don’t lose it.
