I’ve always seen it as part of my role to introduce senior corporate players to office toys with which to amuse, annoy and embarrass colleagues. And few of my finds are as much fun as this remotely controlled indoor spy helicopter, which not only is exceptionally easy to fly (after a bit of practice) even by a clumsy klutz like me, but also takes halfway decent photos and videos. And if you do crash while trying to film your work pals in an incriminating situation, the website that sells Silverlit Spycam also has spare parts.
