Secret CIA spy gadgets uncovered
Some of the CIA's favorite spy inventions from the last half century are now available for public viewing. And you thought 007 gear was cool.
When you think CIA, one of last words likely to come to mind is "open." And yet the U.S. spy organization has begun to lift the lid on its operations--albeit ever so slightly--in a bid to cultivate public support. In fact, the agency recently launched a retooled Web site, complete with YouTube and Flickr channels.
The following gallery shows some of the mementos the agency is now sharing with the public for the first time. If you thought James Bond had cool tech toys, get a load of some of this stuff, which includes a tiny intrusion detector and a pigeon-cam.
