10 Spy Gadgets That Should Be Illegal
Hey there, secret agent man. Do you have a reckless disregard for the law? Have you ever wanted to be in a heist? Thomas Crown, James Bond, and Max Smart got you itching for a gadgetized suit? Any villains in your life? Then this list if for you! Here are 10 spy gadgets that are so awesome they should be illegal.
10. Shotgun Flashlight
Sometimes it’s not enough to light up a foe with photons. Sometimes you have to use .410 caliber shotgun round to discreetly dispatch of what-so-ever or who-so-ever is in your way. Too much you say? Lucky for you it comes in a mini-flashlight version that shoots a more modest .380 caliber shot.
9. 80,000 Volt Attaché Case
This suitcase acts like a normal suitcase, but it comes with a remote (about the size of your car’s keyless entry) that activates a 107db alarm and sends 80,000 volts coursing through whomever thought they could make off with your Magic Card collection. It comes with 16 batteries and 2 remotes (1 for your partner in crime). Is 900 British pounds worth that kind of security? Why don’t you ask the Black Lotus?
8. Ninja Climbing Gear
This “traditional” ninja climbing gear makes me wish I’d taken a lot more Eastern history and philosophy in college. If this is what their traditions are like, then call me a hyper-conservative Confucian. The ninja climbing gear includes a grappling hook as well as hand and foot spikes; it’s $39.95 plust $8.50 shipping and will appear silently by your bedside in the time it takes a cherry blossom to fall from its branch in autumn.
7. Mini Stun Gun
“Do you have anywhere I could plug in my cell phone char –“ BAM! 950,000 VOLTS. That may seem like a lot, but there’s a tricky thing they do with stun guns. An electric chair, for example, runs about 2,000 volts. But! What they mean is 2,000 kilovolts. So, really, it’s 950 of “electric chair standardized” volts. But hell, for a thing that looks like a digital camera charger, not bad. Get it now for $60, and get yourself a free nylon holster.
6. Reverse Peep Hole Viewer
This one is good for the classic “shoot ‘em through the peep hole” move that just get’s my trigger finger itchin’ every time. The lenses inside this mini scope reverse the way a peephole distorts the image allowing you to see inside whatever enclosure had the peep hole on it. And it's yours for just $129.95.
