We’ve featured some pretty cool spy cameras here on DIYP, both vintage and modern. And frankly, I’ve always been fascinated by the ideas people have come up with to hide cameras for espionage. In this video from WIRED, former CIA Chief of Disguise Jonna Mendez guides you through some of the coolest weirdest, and the most popular spy cameras CIA used during the Cold War.
I guess we already know that people will pull all sorts of ridiculous stunts to get Instagram likes. Well, locals in Thailand are aware of that too and some of them have started a pretty quirky business. They spook away pigeons near Tha Pae Gate, an ancient wall and popular tourist attraction in Chiang Mai. They scare flocks of pigeons so they fly through the frame and make tourists’ Instagram photos at least 30% likable.
