Fake Security Camera: Love It or Leave It?

Do you enjoy freaking out your friends? Do you have an affinity for conspiracy theories?

Feed your paranoid antics with this Fake Security Camera ($12)!

It's battery operated and has a motion detector sensor, so it'll follow folks around the room — of course, you could use it outside as a theft deterrent, but it's much more fun to see your buddies squirm, isn't it? I actually had a retail job where they plastered these all around the stores to spook potential stealers, so it's kinda funny that they are predominantly used as a scare tactic product.

My mom runs a private school that used to be in kind of a bad neighborhood, and the fake security cameras really helped drive away the drug dealers in the park across the street.

I really enjoy having one of these. I also have the little bubble "camera." They're both mounted in my classroom - a computer lab where children sometimes vandalize and occasionally steal food from my fridge. The rest of the school has cams, so why not me? They think it's the same system. The blinking light and motion detection is the cat's meow. I will never ever admit to them being fake and they're up so high I get away with it. Shh, don't tell. ;-)

I think it looks so obviously fake that it probably wouldn't deter too many thieves (except the dumb ones on world's dumbest criminals).
