There is a gadget on the market that allows you to take still pictures and videos from a normal-looking pen. The pen writes as well, which is an added bonus!
Wireless Gadgets – Mobile Sensor and Tracker Devices
We’re all familiar with seeing these devices at the movies – the tracker fitted under the car or inside the briefcase that sends out a signal to let the followers know where to go next. You could own one of these – a small device that would fit into your bag or your wallet and sends a signal to the receiver, which is also small enough to carry with you. Should the transmitter moved further than 6 metres away from you, your receiver will sound an alarm, thereby giving you a failsafe way of knowing if your valuables are safe.
Wireless Gadgets – Mobile Sensor Pen
For those dark evenings when you don’t want to be interrupted by your mobile ringing, try a Mobile Sensor Pen. Set at phone frequencies, it flashes when your phone rings, so you can leave your phone on silent and still know you’ve had a call. It is also set to identify signals from wireless cameras, so you’ll know if you’re being watched!
