No, this is not Robocop, and yes, they are real! The Brazilian Police will be wearing
glasses with face-scanning software at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. It can capture
400 facial images a second from about 50 meters away! They are using the glasses
to help identify people involved in fights or other illegal activity.

These two pens are no joke! One of the pens is a weapon to fend off attackers, and
the other pen captures DNA by taking a sample of the blood. Both pens can also be
used for breaking glass.

3. The Lipstick Pistol

weapon was called The Kiss Of Death, and is now housed in the International Spy

4. Sonic Nausea

If you get caught spying, how do you get out of a tight predicament? Perhaps give
the person perusing you an uneasy stomach? The gadget spits out ultra-high
frequency soundwaves which soon leads most in its vicinity to queasiness.

5. Pen Document Scanner

Scanner comes in. The DocuPen RC800 lets you discreetly scan some papers while
nobody is looking.

6. Unshredder

So you found some documents, but theyre shredded!? Just use Unshredder, a
computer program that reconstructs documents that have been shred in machines.
Its much easier than trying to piece everything back together.

7. Maple Seed Camera

These tiny devices are used by the U.S. military. Each seed has a camera and
wireless communications. They are being developed to detect chemical or biological
weapons in war zones, and also to find survivors in disaster areas.

If you are a spy that needs to find drugs (or the government), DrugWipe could be
useful to you. Its a small and portable drug test kit that can fit in a pocket. All
DrugWipe needs is the saliva or sweat from a person, and it can test if someone has
been taking illegal drugs.

9. Bomb-Proof Wallpaper

Bomb-proof wallpaper is useful for spies camping out in dangerous locations, (or it
could be used for safety in natural disasters).

For spies who work internationally, the speech translator application on cell phones is
what they need. When making a phone call, the application will translate the speech
to text right on the screen! Now you really can be James Bond, international spy.
