If You Must Make A Hidden Camera, Don't Make It Look Like Garbage

from the just-a-suggestion dept

Here's one for the "didn't quite think that through, did you" files. Gizmodo points us to the news that British authorities trying to prevent illegal trash dumping put a hidden camera at a popular dumping site. The only problem was that they disguised the hidden camera (which cost somewhere around $20,000 -- I have no clue why it cost so much) as a trash bag, and neglected to tell the folks in charge of cleaning up the site. So, yes, they threw out the hidden camera. Whoops.

    Micro audio video recorder

    DVR ALL IN ONE

    This device “all in one” for the audio/video recording thanks to its minimum size can be hidden almost anywhere, even in electronic devices. The DVR is able to make audio and video files of high quality, thanks to the hight resolution component video and to the powerful microphone preamp. Not only, with “All in one”, you can take great pictures in high resolution, with just one click.

    The same device "All in one" can be used as a real environmental audio recorder because it offers the possibility to record only audio in wave files allowing a considerable saving of energy consumption of the battery and memory space.
