Spy vs Spy

Spies have to make difficult decisions.

When it comes to iPhone-controlled manoeuroable video surveillance gadgets, do you go with the tank or the quadricopter?

Both create their own wifi network. You can steer them using the iPhone, and onboard video cameras allow you to view what’s happening from a safe distance.

The brand new Rover Spy Tank is $159, ordered from Brookstone USA.

The AR Drone from Parrot is $349 available in Australia from Dick Smith.

iLounge has a comprehensive review.

There are a number of augmented reality games available for the drone that enable you to compete in dogfights with your drone-owning friends.

Perhaps, as a professional spy, it would be prudent to add both to your arsenal.
