Spy bot or alarm clock?

In a crowded market, the 'Spy-Cye' is too expensive

The 'Spy-Cye': Separated at birth? Red Ferret
The 'Clocky' Nanda

At first glance, we thought this was just another version of the "Clocky" runaway alarm clock, in a different color. But then we noticed the small camera that seems precariously perched on top.

It's not the amateurish design of the "Spy-Cye" that bothers us; it's the price--$695. That's because mobile spy bots are rapidly approaching commodity status. Target's toy department even sells one for kids.

It's true that the Spy-Cye can be controlled on the PC, as Red Ferret notes, but that's not unique either. Besides, counter-surveillance technologies are taking the fun--er, effectiveness--out of spy cams anyway.
