Illustration for article titled Pennycam Captures Convenience Store Thieves, Penny Pinchers

I know how it is with you man-you see that "Take-a-Penny, Leave-a-Penny" tray and it is all "take, take, take!" Well your days of penny pinching are over now that SteathVue has developed their Pennycam. What they have done is to embed a security camera inside the tray that relays upward angled video to a DVR using a standard BNC cable. Obviously, Pennycam is intended to capture clearer (500 x 582 resolution) images of thieves that try and obscure their face from overhead cameras-and it seems to work pretty well based on the footage in the following demo video.

The Pennycam is powered by a 12V adapter and is fairly inexpensive at only $199. [StealthVue via Gizmag via SlipperyBrick]
