There are plenty of wireless spy-cams around, but this one gets a special mention because it is so cute, and at the same time so very sinister.
The BL-C230A from Panasonic will sit and wait, staring unblinkingly at its assigned slice of the world, watching patiently for some action. Should it hear a sound, see movement or detect body-heat – Predator-style – it will go into action and start filming the unfolding shenanigans, day or night.
The footage can then be emailed to you, or send directly to a VIERA link-compatible TV. If you prefer, you can just dial-in and watch the 30fps, H.264 stream over the 802.11b/g network. You can also pan and zoom remotely and connect up to 16 of these critters together to make a truly UK-style surveillance network.
