The craziest in-car automotive gadgets

Gadgets from the automotive world that'll make you say "Wow, that’s cool!" or "Wow, that's... ridiculous."

Keychain camera

In Australia, we have a privacy laws that make it illegal to record someone's voice without their permission. But hey, who can resist a bit of privacy invasion with this cleverly disguised camera. Capturing video, audio and still images on a device in the shape of a central locking remote, the Keychain camera allows users to record and take photos while pretending they're unlocking their car or holding their keys.

"Holding a set of keys in your hand is perfectly natural and it would also be completely unremarkable to put your keys down on a table in front of you. If you position them carefully, you can record everything that you want it to, without anyone noticing that they're on camera," says the Web site. They do have a disclaimer that warns of potential legal issues with recording, so even if you get arrested for using the camera, they won't.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
