Electronic Spy Camera T-Shirt perfect for Mr. Bond 007

Sometimes the best hiding spot is right out in the open, and that’s exactly the philosophy behind ThinkGeek’s latest creation, the Electronic Spy Camera Shirt.

 

It’s so deliciously obvious. The shirt features a faux movie poster graphic for a non-existent film called From Tokyo With Love, Centered in the artwork on the shirt is the man himself,a hero who is like and dressed like James Bond 007  holding a camera to his face. But not just a picture of a camera. Hidden behind the soft cotton exterior is a fully-functioning spy camera. That’s right. Whatever your chest can see, the camera can see. A cable connects the camera to a small black box that fits discreetly in your pocket. Just reach in, press the button, and your shirt will capture the evidence before you.

A remote wired trigger, which can be stashed in your pocket, is used to snap up to 150 covert pics before you need to dump them to a PC via a USB cable, and presumably the 3xAAA batteries and is compatible with both a Mac and Windows OS and all parts are removable  like most electronically enhanced tees the high-tech bits are completely removable for washing purposes, so you can wash your t-shirt.

and it’s available now from ThinkGeek for $39.99.

Go and grab it now so you can be a spy like Bond 007.

Reasons behind delays of the Apple’s White iPhone 4

 

For those people who’s keeping track of this white iPhone 4, it has now    been  pushed back for three times. Once to July, once to the end of the year,  and now until next spring.

This news comes after an announcement by Apple spokesperson Trudy Muller said that the White iPhone 4 won’t drop until Spring 2011 and news that Apple secretly canceled the White iPhone altogether.

According to the source with connections to the Apple, The white iPhone 4 has been delayed because it can’t take good pictures. The white case leaks light back in — especially when the flash is used to take pictures.

The white iPhone 4 can’t take accurate photographs. The handset’s semi-translucent glass case leaks light in, ruining pictures taken with the internal camera, especially when the built-in flash is used.

“You don’t get accurate pictures on the white iPhone because of the color of the glass back. It washes out the pictures,”

Apple has been struggling to isolate the camera sensor. The problem may demand a complete redesign. the problem only surfaced at the last minute at a secret testing facility Apple has set up for case manufacturers.

 

I think Apple should not pursue this thing. Apple is causing some critics to wonder why the device is even worth pursuing. Apple might not like to get a black eye and look bad. But if it’s having such trouble getting the devices to where it wants them, it shouldn’t waste its time.

Let’s face it, the white iPhone 4 is a neat-looking smartphone, but it’s not really necessary. The black version of the device is doing just fine, and considering the delayed smartphone only offers a color change, it’s hard to see why many folks would care if Apple didn’t sell it. But its iPhone is doing just fine without it.

If Apple definitely wants to offer a white iPhone, maybe the company should consider waiting until next year when it releases an update to the iPhone 4.

Aquashot Underwater Camera All New from Speedo

I currently have a digital camera but this thing from Speedo, i like how it looks and the concept of it. I am not really fond of  digital camera’s but I think I want to have one of these and It’d just be so nice to have a camera that can handle going anywhere that I can. Wouldn’t it be nice to go for a swim and be able to take your camera with you?  Well thankfully Speedo has a camera meant just for the water lovers out there. lol.

The camera will take all sorts of pictures as long as you only bring it 3 feet under the water.  If you happen to accidentally let go of it while it’s underwater, this camera won’t sink.  Instead it’ll just float to the surface.  It has a 5 megapixel sensor, 4x digital zoom, 2.4 inch LCD screen, SD memory card slots and to finish it off it’s capable of shooting VGA quality video at 30fps.  These come in green and pink, to pick one up it’ll cost you about $138 through Amazon.

  • Nikon wants to create its new next big idea

    According to Makoto Kimura-company president, Nikon wants to create a whole “new market” with its next big idea. Kimura says it’s time for digital cameras to move with the times and Nikon will be ready to take up its usual leadership position. Nikon wants to join a growing ranks of mirrorless interchangeable lens shooters that passage over a gap between full-fledged DSLR and pocket-friendly compact cameras.

    According to EVIL (Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens) cameras have already proven that in order to get superior low light performance, a larger sensor is absolutely necessary, and unless Nikon has suddenly defined the laws of science/physics.

    Looks interesting right? for me, that’s actually not a bad idea. I would love to be able to have the quality of a full-fledged DSLR when I need it, and the portability of a point-and-shoot anytime else.
