The actual applications of the Spyball are far from practical, but we already knew that since the manufacturer is a toy company. Nonetheless, tweens and teens will enjoy its snooping abilities thanks to the built-in pop out camera that can record video and stills. It can be controlled by accessing the unit via the Internet, or connecting directly with it over ‘ad hoc’ WiFi.

The Spyball will be available this year for an undisclosed price.
