What is it with building stuff into pens? First it was a Wi-Fi detector, now a Japanese company (of course) has developed what they call the " SpyPen." Because, if every thriller I've ever seen is any indication, spies love devices disguised as pens . This time around, it's a flash memory drive in capacities of 128MB, 256MB, and 512MB for $24, $33, and $41 respectively.

Of course it works as a standard ballpoint pen too—how could you expect to sneak it into the CIA if it didn't manage to write things down? But the SpyPen throws in one extra feature: the SpyPen can also be used as a card reader for SD/MMC memory cards hidden in the pen's clip. Very cool. Plug it into a USB slot and you'll get two volumes: one for the flash drive and one for the memory card. It would be cooler if they could automatically download the contents of the memory card onto the internal flash drive. Then you'd have spies lining up in droves . Quietly, of course.
