Robotic Spyplanes have Medical uses too

This isn’t the first time that we have reported on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), and most of the time, these are used for spying in enemy territory. It appears that UAVs have medicinal uses as electronic flying couriers.

Think of them as that big G button on Speed Racer’s Mach 5 that fires an electronic homing pigeon. It was used on the cartoon all the time, but only mentioned in the movie. (By the way, the Speed Racer movie is coming out on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, and you should invest your money in a film that was incredibly awesome and yet was somehow a box-office flop.)

Sorry for digression, but I thought the Speed Racer reference would give you a good idea what these electronic courier pigeons do. These things can be programmed to carry medical supplies to and fro to places that don’t have advanced hospitals, such as Third World countries.

Calculator Spycam can do the math on spywork

From what I’ve seen of James Bond lately, he doesn’t seem to visit Q’s lab anymore. If this new Daniel Craig James Bond should ever drop by Q’s lab in the new film that comes out in November, he might be impressed by the Calculator Spycam.

Yes, the calculator Spycam is exactly what you think it is, a calculator with a miniature camera mounted on it. While I’m not certain whether the side is a good spot for the lens, it would be the last place most people would look for it.

In addition to the handy calculator, the Calculator Spycam comes with some other bonus features. It comes with a 2.4 inch LCD display for viewing, and it can store of up 2GB of memory via SD cards.

Cops can finally track, rather than chase bad guys

We’ve all been mesmerized by the local news coverage of some bad guy fleeing police in a high speed chase. And like watching car racing and hockey, we just wait for the inevitable crash that will end the pursuit. And soon enough, it comes and the foolish perp is taken away in cuffs while his car is a smoldering mass of twisted metal. But lately, police are catching all kinds of flack for pursuing these car chases at the endangerment of the local populace. Some have even taken to letting the guy go, rather than risk a crash and human lives which result in the inevitable bevy of lawsuits. But now, they can track the bad guy, rather than chase him, with a new projectile GPS transceiver which will allow the helicopter and units monitoring to simply hang back and wait for the perp to get where he’s going.

WiFi adapter makes you scream “I have got to get me one of these!”


Remember the scene in INDEPENDENCE DAY when Jeff Goldblum places a satellite like dish on the roof of his dad’s car and triangulates the signal of his wife’s cellphone to determine where she was in the White House? His dad asks him how he can do that and he replies “all cable repair men know how to do this, pop.” Well, the Hi-Gain USB Wireless-300N Dish Adapter from Hawking Technologies won’t triangulate a signal in the White House, but it will boost weak WiFi signals in areas where a signal isn’t very strong to begin with.

Gryphon goes on a diet, gets ready for war


Back in 06 we reported on the ESG Gryphon Personal Flying Wing, and it had military applications written all over it, or, a cool opening scene to the next James Bond Flick. The latest version, rechristened the Gryphon Attack Glider by SPELLCO (the new company name), has slimmed down the weight by 30 pounds and also offers the ability to carry up to 100 pounds of onboard gear and even carry weapons hard points for mini missiles and bombs. Yowsa. And with a maximum glide speed of 135 MPH, that makes this not only an attack glider, but a serious special ops platform for attacking well behind enemy lines.

Camera sees through clothes

thruvision.jpgA British company has come up with a camera that surprisingly enough, goes against all things prude in Britain. This unique camera has the special ability to detect various items such as weapons, drugs and even explosives hidden under one’s clothes from up to 25 meters away, making this a potential breakthrough where the security industry is concerned. Dubbed the T5000 camera from ThruVision, it utilizes “passive imaging technology” that helps identify objects via their natural electromagnetic rays, also known as Terahertz or T-rays which are emitted.

Under Door Remote Viewing

If you fancy your self as a spy then this under door remote viewing kit is a must for you. The viewing kit allows you to see behind a door before you open it. The scope section is used to slide under the door and can fit in a space less then quarter of an inch. The field of view is 55° which can see from the floor right up to the ceiling. As well as seeing what it in the room, there is a right angle adapter which allows you to view the back of the door so you can observe any barricades or traps.
