Available from Fly on the Wall, this camera-enabled photo frame has a tiny DVR camera embedded within its structure.

Once downloaded on to your computer, you can quickly review whatever activities are taking place in your house. It is powered via a lithium-ion battery, and a USB charging and transfer cable is included. The photo frame is priced at £124.99 ($200).
