For your inner spy, there’s a video pen!

Sometimes while I venture around Manhattan between meetings, I occasion Brookstone to play with their latest gadgets.  I often joke that if reincarnation is true, then in my previous life I must have been a spy; so it should come as no surpise that on my recent visit to Brookstone, I found myself instanly in love with this awesome Video Spy Pen.

This ordinary-looking pen lets you take covert color videos with the touch of a button.  Designed for the secret agent in us all, this “Spy Pen” sits in your pocket and takes full-color video at 640 x 480 resolution. And of course, it works as a real pen –you can use it to sign your dinner check or write notes. Rechargeable and versatile— it has a 4GB flash drive that can hold up to 1.5 hours of video. With a simple, one-button operation, the pen runs for up to 2 hours on a single charge. Also records sound. Even clips neatly into a shirt or jacket pocket.

Available at Brookstone on sale for $79.99.
