Total Security, Inc.’s covert experts outfit individuals with all the equipment necessary for secret observations and train students in the necessary skills, arts, and laws to pursue a career as a private eye. Spy gear enables eager mystery-solvers to record conversations, set up security systems, and tap a 2-year-old’s toy phone. The petite-yet-powerful PI-CamStick ($99) easily conceals itself within gum wrappers or lighters for stealthy recording capabilities, and the Ranger digital night-vision monocular illuminates the darkness with infrared rays ($599).
In a private detective course, instructors divide up 20 hours of sleuthing instruction over a four-day period, during which students learn basic investigative techniques. Potential snoops transform their conspicuous bodies into intangible shadows as they learn to follow targets, find people, and delve into databases for computerized secrets. Attendees take virtual tours of an armory’s worth of gizmos and gadgetries that aid modern detectives in extending their eyesight, preserving their memories, or looking great in a trench coat.
