The Brinno is a weatherproof timelapse garden video camera, capable of taking a 1,280 by 1,024 pixel image every hour for four months before its batteries need to be changed. You can also tune its interval to be anywhere from five seconds to 24 hours, giving you a wide array of uses, provided you can find places to mount it by shoving its built-in spike into something squishy.
$160, plus shipping, at Hammacher Schlemmer. It's also available at Amazon, where it sports a single two-star review that makes it sound like the company that produces it is just barely in business. [via Oh! Gizmo]
