In Australia, we have a privacy laws that make it illegal to record someone's voice without their permission. But hey, who can resist a bit of privacy invasion with this cleverly disguised camera. Capturing video, audio and still images on a device in the shape of a central locking remote, the Keychain camera allows users to record and take photos while pretending they're unlocking their car or holding their keys.

"Holding a set of keys in your hand is perfectly natural and it would also be completely unremarkable to put your keys down on a table in front of you. If you position them carefully, you can record everything that you want it to, without anyone noticing that they're on camera," says the Web site. They do have a disclaimer that warns of potential legal issues with recording, so even if you get arrested for using the camera, they won't.
