From Russia With Love: KGB Spy Toys
Secret listening devices, guns, cameras . . . it’s just the KGB spying on you, no need to worry. I’m sure some of us have often wondered what such devices might look like in real world, especially after watching a James Bond movie.
From a 4.5mm gun hidden inside a lipstick, to a miniature electronic listening system hidden within a small log, the KGB spy toys are just some of the fun toys agents get to play with. While many of the photos show dated technology, it is still fascinating to view them.
Think back to when James Bond (Tommorow never dies) drove his BMW 750iL after Q handed him a phone equipped with on-screen camera and controls. That, however, is now doable with today’s smartphones, namely with an iPhone app iDriver using the phones gyro capability and several modifications done to the vehicle.
Gadgets such as these simply fascinate the human mind, mostly due to their creative thinker behind the device to conceal and miniaturize the device—and making the agent simply look cool. And let’s face it: James Bond was cool, even with the ladies!
