World's Smallest Camera

Yeah, I think the big problem would be perverts. I'm telling you people, with all this micro cameras and internet monitors and all of that, we could be being watched very closely and we may never even know it.

 

With a camera that small.... I'm afraid to change clothes now...

 

But hey, I can see how a 007 can use those, put it in your tie or something. That'd be freaking awesome.

 

As for what it'd look like hooked up to cables, I did some resea-.... googling and found some neat stuff.

Thx for those pics... Cables doesnt look too big, you can hide it under your clothes easily. Perfect for recording everything you see. A Video-diary :)

I wonder if the good uses will outweigh the bad uses with this sort of technology.Catching shoplifters = catching sexual prey?

You can probably spy some people with the camera. But the picture quality won't be that great considering the price and the size of the camera.

Things such as stalking someone might not be very difficult, even with a low resolution camera. It's scary because a lot of people get stalked without the use of technology. What happens when you do add something that can be so easily hid, yet still offer a decent amount of information to your query?

I dont see the point of creating cameras that seem to get smaller and smaller. It seems as though peoples intentions are good but there seems to be so many bad reason and ways to use this technology. People in shops should have the big cameras as that way they can alert people that they are being watched. I read a case where a shoplifter sued the owners as they had hidden the camera! Im not sure if that is real or if it is actually against the law? But these small cameras are very dangerous, people could be bugged in their houses and not even know. This would also be bad as terrorists could bug presidents and other countries presidents or prime ministers. So the creators should put a stop to this by making a special force field like thing, that stops cameras working in an area.

This is pretty true. There is so much in today's world that was created in order to be beneficial to our society, yet there are so many people who twist the use into something totally opposite. I wonder if people who invent/create things are always caught up in the bliss of finally acheiving a goal. Maybe they are blind to see what cruel intentions can be thought up using their invention?

I play several different games where I am part of a guild or clan within the game. When we get together to discuss rules/ideas/whatever else, we always have one special person who is there only to point out the BAD things from our GOOD ideas. We do this on purpose, because it's always a good idea to explore the negative side of our thoughts before we put something out into our ranks.

If good uses do not outweight bad uses (this is somewhat limited, as practically ANYTHING can be used for evil purposes), then do we really want this out in society?

that is just way to small, i don't think it will work well either. I mean i may only store 1 to 3 pictures max on the little thing, if it takes film or memeroy card. This is just crazy how small this camara is. I would not like only because it is probbaly low realition and to easy to loose.

Well I'm really not into spying (honest), So I really don't think this ones is form also at $138.95 I could get a excelent camera, which I wouldn't lose and would just as easily manage the spying job (youi just have to know where to hide it). But I suppose this is something which is designed more as a proof of concept than as something which is going to be used by a large number of people. It also has obvious uses in portable devices (due to its size, the price doesn't help). Well anyway while I don't perasonally see the need for making things smaller in general, (I tend to prefer big things) i'm sure there are a few people who could put this to (immoral) uses (hey I bet you thought it too)

They make 138 dollars for sumthing that takes 10$ to make. It's bit of a rip if you think about it. Although it could come really handy in some situations. So it'd be neat to own one.

Obviously any technology or new invention can and will be abused. Life is full of crazy things like that. Or should I say crazy people like that. However something like this is useful to look in on caretakers of your children and your elderly parents or elderly relatives. Its the perfect way to make sure they are getting the right kind of care. I think its a little wrong to use it to spy on your children or your spouse but I suppose if you suspect that they are cheating on you this would be the thing to do. It seems aweful though. It would be a good hidden camera for convience stores and the like since they seem to be popular places to be hit with crimes.

spy_charly

really amazing i must say, in my opinion it can be sort of useful when doing a project and you want to use the smallest camera for the task, now the problem could be the price... it seems to be pretty expensive... i am sure you could win with it...and maybe another useful use would be spy to your girlfriend lol...


Mathew

I dont knwo if thats a good thing or bad thing. Good in the sense the US can us it to spy on people. Bad in the sense that people can spy on other people(voyeur)

Amazing! I can't wait for day when they become popular! We can do simple surveillance upon others then! You see, there are just so many times that you think, ?Gee, I should have brought a camera, or a video recorder,? when you are out. And you really want to have those coveted conversations and ambiguous act recorded so that you can use them against those people. A camera is a must. Forget about the wire. There are just numerous ways to sort out the nuisance. You may put the camera in a vase, place it in the speaker of a hi-fi system, put it in the nose of a teddy bear, etc. The wire, provided that you can hide it popularly, is no problem at all.


wild20

Yeah sure great, now we will have all these offenders using it to spy in womens windows or hide it in a house. It shouldn't be for common public unless a background check it mandatory and a lisence is required to own one. But the technology around it is really cool. I would get it and hide it next to those rat holes by my coop. Look out rats!


ts_r

that looks amazing. But probally really expensive and really easy to loose. But would be really good for someone spying on someone.


pyt

its pretty cool but i doubt i would get it because i would lose it and it would be a waste

"You don't have a camera the size of 1/8 post stamp? God you are so behind the mode..."I think this camera is so small it has almost no use anymore.. :[

I think thats kinda Going to be used by fraudsters. think about it all they need to do is set it up above a bank and they can get all your details. Kinda dodgy like that but a neat piece of kit.
