An air freshener that spies on you

This air freshener contains a hidden Wi-Fi enabled camera which can transfer footage directly to a computer, whether it is a Windows PC, Mac, or mobile device including an iPhone, iPad or Android device. In addition, footage can be viewed over a local network, or configured so it can be downloaded worldwide.

The camera footage -- gained through a 50 degree viewing angle -- can be recorded through Wi-Fi or through an optional AV recorder application.

Tests have found that footage can be adequately recorded at an average of 12.5 meters. The unit has a five-hour battery life on a standard battery, or 12 hours on a long-life version. 

The air freshener camera is priced at £175.00 ($280).
