Yeah, the more I think about this I think there could actually be a market...if the technology is close.

I remember seeing a pen camera on It does [email protected] with audio. This is assuming that you don't mind carrying a pen everywhere.

I've also seen a several car-mounted camera units.

Unfortunately every system I've seen records the video files locally and unencrypted. Sad

Hope this helps.

Ok, so this is a question for those in our membership who are the most paranoid (or maybe merely the most technically savvy).  I recently have been reading up on the whole "video your government officials (cops)" movement, and the more I think about it, the more it makes sense.  It's a non-violent way of potentially keeping these bastards accountable for their actions.  That being said, I thought about what would be my ideal product:
  • A spy watch or other jewelry with:
  • battery life and storage to record audio for 24 hrs OR
  • battery life and storage to record video for 12 hrs
  • all recordings are encrypted

If you can't tell, the goal would be to have it record my daily life entirely, encrypted, and then when I go to bed have it charge and uploaded to the internet (cloud storage, bitcoin?, freenet, etc).   Additionally wherever you decide to store it could delete it after X days (according to your payment plan). Because it's encrypted, it's like having an insurance policy at all times. So the goal is if you're put in the slammer or are being harassed by some cops you'll have it all in evidence so that they'll think twice about being dicks.

I'm new to the spy/surveillance industry.  I don't want to have to wear a spy watch AND A backpack full of batteries Wink.  I'm thinking that if such a product existed we could totally get the mainstream on board and these things (and decoys) could take off like the Lance Armstrong "livestrong" bracelets.

Any idea if there is a product out there that is even close to being capable of handling such a task?
