Security pros Swann have launched a new pen, which has hidden abilities, perfect for the wannabe James Bond.

The PenCam DVR is claimed to be ideal for undercover surveillance and discreet surveillance as it conceals a colour video camera and microphone.

And it's also a working pen.

Swann adds that it has a transmission range of up to 100m and will work even in bad light conditions.

Simply click the top of the pen and it begins transmitting.

It comes with batteries, an auxiliary 9V battery kit, an A/V cable, power adaptor and quick start guide all for £99.99.

And if you're quick, Maplin stores will be selling the PenCam for £59.99 but for a limited period only.
