Mr. Bond, call your office.

If you thought WikiLeaks was something, wait till you see The Transparency Grenade.

Equipped with a tiny computer, microphone and powerful wireless antenna, the Transparency Grenade captures network traffic and audio at the site and securely and anonymously streams it to a dedicated server where it is mined for information. Email fragments, HTML pages, images and voice extracted from this data are then presented on an online, public map, shown at the location of the detonation.

Because the best way to sneak a high-tech spy device into a sensitive high-security meeting is to make it look like a bomb.

    I’m just enough of a mechanical nerd to be annoyed that
    1) They made the body in two pieces; and
    2) The pieces aren’t identical, as they could have been.

    Do even Russian grenades still look like that? American ones certainly don’t.
