The Uzi Tactical Pen, is a unique writing instrument that can double up as a potentially life saving tool should the situation for it. The DNA Catcher which is located on the crown of the pen is very sharp, and hence can be used to deliver a very nasty jab to an attacker that causes not only extreme pain (and an opportunity to bolt away), while giving you a sample of their DNA to use when you go to the police. If you aren’t anticipating any attacks, the crown also functions as a glass breaker just in case you’re stuck in your vehicle. Made out of high-grade aircraft aluminum, it can write upside down or under water.
The ATM Skimmer (above) is a slot that is designed to fit over an ordinary ATM card reader of your typical ATM.
This particular one was found on a Citibank ATM in Woodland Hills, California. When a customer went to withdraw some cash, little did he or she know that his or her card was scanned by a thief. The Skimmer also had a tiny camera to record the user as he or she entered his or her PIN number.
You’ve overnighted an important document and need to know if it has definitely been received. You can monitor FedEx online every 5 minutes (and their status updates tend to lag anywhere from a few hours to a day) or you can use Senseaware.
FedEx has stepped up their tracking game with Senseaware, a drop-in sensor for packages that monitors everything.
This device is about the size of a BlackBerry, and it tracks everything like temperature, exact location, and whether or not it has been opened or exposed to light. It even has a built-in accelerometer so it will detect when it has been dropped.
Attach to any cell phone and the CSI Stick will be able to see any calls placed or text messages sent or received. The CSI Stick can also make a logical copy of this data for further investigation, if needed.

As always, stay safe.
