The Wild Planet Spy Video TRAKR is a toy with a mission. You send it into enemy territory, turn on the video camera, and start watching what’s going on in distant rooms. It has a built-in speaker and microphone, as well, so you can announce your presence at opportune times. Or not.
The toy won’t be available until October 2010 and will cost $120. You can even program this thing via PC and teach it to do tricks like “Hide behind the robes in the bathroom” and “Scare Grandma by telling her you see her drinking all that whiskey,” among other old favorites.
