Strange-Looking Surveillance Camera

Looking more like a children's trashcan than a camera, the Pupillo is designed to shoot surveillance that can be transferred straight to your 3G phone (which nobody here in the US has yet, of course). Offered by Three Telecom in the UK, this gadget is battery-powered and being marketed as a sort of nanny-cam to check on your kids. It comes with its own phone number and you'll be able to call in to it, enter a PIN and start viewing video on your mobile. Though not exactly made to look discreet, I guess you can hide it in a plant or something if you're desperate. And it comes with night vision, just in case you have the Predator in your den. Goes for about $265.
