I spy with my little mains adaptor

There are some interesting things for sale at Maplin. This, for example, looks like an ordinary UK mains adaptor. But it isn’t. Oh no.

It’s actually a cellphone. More information here.

If you’re concerned, however, that your mischievous kids might start planting these things around the house, I should point out that each one costs about the same as the more expensive model of iPhone.


“The plug is NOT a working model and can be used to monitor a particular area for periods of audio surveillance. ”

350 pounds, and it doesn’t even allow a lamp to be plugged in?! 😉

Maplin is full of unlikely and strange things. I’m still not sure how the one I’ve linked works, but it’s fun to puzzle over.

Ah – yes – that’s cute 🙂
