For just $91, you can take full HD video with these specs. The frames may look a little clunky, but the camera is barely noticeable.

Hidden camera: Thanko's Mitamanma Megane Thanko

If you long for high-tech eyewear but can't afford, or wait, for Google Glass, these Japanese glasses let you record in HD for less than $100.

Mitamanma Megane from Japan's Thanko hide the camera in the frame and only cost 8,890 yen ($91). That's cheaper than similar products like Pivothead video glasses , which go for around $300.

The Thanko frames look pretty clunky, and weigh 2.11 ounces, but the camera is barely noticeable.

The specs record 1,920×1,080 AVI files at 20-30fps onto a microSD card in the frame, and take about three hours to recharge via USB. A full charge gives you about 30-40 minutes of recording time, according to Thanko.

A small button on the frames starts recording. You can watch a game of catch recorded with the glasses in the promo video below.

These could pass for designer glasses, making them perfect for spying. Get them from White Rabbit Express here.
