Eyetek's two-way adapter may seem innocent, but it also functions as a hidden recorder.

Activated through voice-recognition technology, the digital recording system is completely hidden under a functional mains-powered unit. Recordings are stored on a Micro SD card, and the amount of information you can store is only limited by the size of the card you use, up to 32GB; in other words, 24 days of recording time.
