    Cons-
    - Poor image quality
    - Clumsy way of changing from video mode to image mode. (You need to open up the pen and then toggle the switch behind the USB stick.)
    - Obvious holes which are the camera, mic and receiver light.
    - Feels big in your hand

    How has it aided my day-to-day life-
    Well I'm no 007 secret service if that's what your expecting, however I just use it as a novelty item, something to mess around with friends, funny mug shots etc.

    Conclusion-
    What do I really think about it?
    Well I love the fact that they are playing around in these areas, fitting a USB stick, camera, video capability's, singular recording and also work as a pen is pretty impressive to have all this fit into a nice looking pen. Also the fact they are trying to implement these and being able to make it work effectively well.

    It's an eye opener into small technology and the fact that everything is going nano but still retaining the same effective result. For example, the capability's of a camera, but into a pen. Yes it does have it's draw backs like the quality of the image, yet like I said it can only get better.

    of course, I am sorry (To me it sounded too much like James Bond in the 80īs)
