Flask-Camera Helps You Sneak in Booze, But Not That WellBy Chris Weiss
Many a gentleman would like to be able to walk around with his favorite liquor pocketed safely in his pants. However, most of those guys don’t want to deal with the dirty looks and social stigma of sipping from a stainless steel flask on the middle of a busy street. Sipping from a digital camera, on the other hand? Now you just look like a crazy bum, and no one’s going to judge.
Perhaps that’s not exactly how Binocktails–who’s tagline reads “Take Your Favorite Beverage Anywhere”–views its Bev-Cam camera flask, but we’re pretty sure most people watching a middle-aged man sip from an optical sensor will. The device may look like a camera, but it carries 5 oz. of liquid rather than megapixels. With that limitation, you’d better make it some of the strong stuff.
At first I wondered why a company would choose a camera–a device that can be banned from the very places you would want to sneak liquor into in the first place. However, a little digging around Binocktails site reveals that they also offer a set of binoculars (no surprise given the company name) and a cell phone. The binoculars are even more awkward than the camera–anyone who carries binocs around in public is just asking for police harassment. A cell phone, however, is just unsuspicious enough to do the deed pretty much anywhere.
The Bev-Cam costs $12.99, the 3 oz. Bev-Burry phone flask costs $10.99 and the 16 oz. Binocular Double Flask costs $16.99. I think you might need to throw in a little self respect as well. [Binocktails via Dvice]
