Who Knew? Spy Camera Glasses Can Actually Be Subtle

Just last night I was saying I needed a pair of glasses with a camera in them, because some people are just too special to be described in words. My problem with all the varieties I’ve ever seen is that it’s really obvious that they contain a camera. Even if the camera itself is not really visible, the style of the glasses is something that no one in their right mind would ever wear. And really, if you’re going to go to all the trouble of buying a pair of spy glasses, you want them to be something other people would believe you would actually put on your face on purpose.

Now, these may not be the style you or I would choose first were we standing in an eyeglass store, but they aren’t awful. They kind of remind me of the ones Sarah Palin made so ridiculously popular (whatever you think of her personally, she did have some style). The camera is embedded in the frame at the end of the bow, and peeps through a pinhole so small it’s hard to see without concentrating on it. The connecting cable looks like a regular neck strap you might have put on your glasses. But wait, it gets better! You can have your prescription lenses installed in them, so if you already wear glasses no one will think anything of you getting new frames, and you’ll still be able to see!

The drawback is they record to a portable DVR, which lessens the subtlety considerably. But if you carry, say, a backpack, it should be fairly easy to conceal. Assuming, of course, you are using these for nefarious purposes (what I was thinking of, since it’s not always socially acceptable to take a picture of someone at the bar so you can post it on Facebook to amuse your friends). The glasses feature a low light, high resolution camera, PAL or NTSC format. Each pair will run you $295.00 US.
