Nanny cams come in all shapes and sizes. From Teddy Bears to cigarette packs, it seems there’s a hidden camera disguised as almost any common household item these days.
Now comes the “Mini MP3 Cam” designed by Chinese manufacturer Xiangyun Industry. This time the video camera has been cleverly hidden inside what looks to be a second generation iPod Shuffle.
The 1.3 MP video camera records 640×480 video at 20 fps in AVI or it can also take still .jpg images when triggered. The camera has a USB connector for getting the media onto your computer as well.
Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be a U.S. distributor set up yet but the camera sells for only $15-$30 based on quantity purchased.
