Is there a black cat in that pile of coal, and if so, what's she doing? A new way of finding out is the USBGeek Infrared Night Vision HD Spy Cam Car Key, a tiny video camera with an infrared LED providing illumination for 1080p HD videos taken in the darkest of rooms.

This amazing little gadget measures 63 mm x 36 mm x 18 mm (2.5 x 1.4 x 0.7 inches), about the size of a remote car door controller, and the unit weighs in at 25 grams (0.8 oz).

Perhaps more important to the overall appeal of the Spy Cam Car Key, it doesn't look like a camera, even on fairly close inspection. The opening for the lens is about three millimeters (1/8-inch) in diameter, and the control switches are typical of a remote car key.

Some of its other features include:

  • 8 GB memory built in, video recorded as AVI
  • Rechargable battery
  • USB interface for transferring videos and battery recharging
  • Takes regular and IR videos and pictures, as desired
  • Motion-detecting record activation
  • Records audio
  • The Spy Cam Car Key is priced at just under US$60, and can be seen in action in the video.
