The global positioning system is quite useful on trips for as having one will ensure you will never get lost and even find ways to get to your destination faster.

3. Compass

A gadget proven throughout the ages and I might add a must have as an alternative for a GPS because you’re not always going to have the electrical power to run a GPS but a compass runs 24/7 so you’re not going to get lost.

4. Taser

4

If you travel with this gadget then anything dangerous that comes within 5 feet of you is in for some serious pain.

8

You won’t have any power switches on a trip so you will definitely need this to charge up any electronic gadgets that you might have brought along on your journey.

9. Lighter Stick Fire Maker

Top 10 Gadgets with a Spy Camera http://designlap.com/video-camera-gadgets-2/ http://designlap.com/video-camera-gadgets-2/#comments Mon, 07 Apr 2014 17:54:53 +0000 http://designlap.com/?p=5756

 

Interesting Facts

  1. The first camera required 8 hours to take a one photograph.

  2. The latest camera developed by MIT Media Lab’s Camera Culture can record 1,000,000,000,000 frames per second. (1 trillion)

  5. The largest photograph ever captured called “The Great Picture” measured 31ft Height and 107ft Width. (3375 Sq ft)

 

In the current generation, cameras have become so common that you end up encountering one wherever you go. These are some of the most unique places where we’ve seen cameras mounted/attached. 

1.      Police Badge Camera

1

 

Police seem to be getting smarter and smarter with each passing day because they’ve actually begun to have cameras attached to their police badges to sneakily record anything that they might find suspicious.

2.      Helmet Mounted Camera

2

You’ve probably already seen these go-pro helmet mounted cameras by now, they’re mostly used by bikers or cyclists to record whatever messed up stunts they’re trying to pull off.

3.      Weapon Mounted Camera

3

I’m not necessarily sure why a soldier would want a camera attached on top of his weapon but this is slowly becoming a common thing amongst weaponry for reasons that I’m not exactly sure of.

4.      Camera Mounted RC helicopters

4

I’m sure we’ve all wanted to take a view of the land from a birds-eye perspective. Well these make that a possibility, fly them up and record a video from a very high altitude, pretty fun actually. You could also spy on other people through their window’s if you feel like it (don’t do this though).

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.
