Awhile ago, I wrote a post "Beware ! You are being watched." The post was about tiny spy devices and gadgets used by spies as hidden cameras during their professional pursuits. The post till date tops the most read post of Hobby Shobbys.
Today, I came across yet another compilation of gadgets at Business Insider and thought of sharing it with my viewers as this post also carries images of some amazing spy gadgets used during the Cold War era. Although attributed to the KGB, I am sure similar gadgets would been sed by CIA and other intelligence agencies around the world to keep an eye on the enemies jus like Spy vs Spy.
From Russian photoblog PhotoShtab.ru comes these great pictures of Cold War-era miniature gadgets that KGB spies and others used to monitor, smuggle, and kill (via RussiaEnglish).
Seeing as we have just seen the new adaptation of John Le Carre's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, these photos are a another great reminder of how paranoid and insane that whole 'Cold War' period was.
