5.      Camera Mounted RC Car

5

The RC Camera mounted car is pretty similar to the RC helicopter but you record at the ground level instead of being high up in the air. While it may not sound as fun as the helicopter, it has its own uses.

6.      Panoramic Ball Camera

6

This is a truly revolutionizing gadget. It’s basically a ball that you throw out to take pictures, sounds pretty simple on paper but what you probably don’t know is that it takes a full 360 degree picture and the results are simply jaw dropping.

7.      Camera Mounted Watch

7

The camera mounted watch is definitely something that I’d consider buying. It has what is basically an undetectable camera so you can record anything you want even if its forbidden on top of that the watch has a pretty elegant design so that’s another plus.

8.      Camera Mounted Pen

8

Same concept as the Camera Mounted Watch but this time the camera is disguised inside a pen which makes it a hell of a lot more difficult to actually detect the camera so you can just go ahead and record anything that you aren’t really supposed to. It can also actually write so you won’t have a hard time convincing people that it is a genuine pen.

9.      Spy  Camera Sun Glasses

9

Doesn’t get any better than this because you get to avoid the blinding light of the sun and along with that you’re also able to record what you see so you’re basically getting the best of both worlds.

10.  Ring Camera

10

For the spy within you, this baby allows you to take a video of anything you want to while also being a pretty decent fashion accessory. I’m totally buying this if I can ever find one.
