Spy Gear Eye-Link Communicators
Spy kids type top secrets
noise can blow the cover of anyone entrusted with a
mission, but not with the Spy Gear Eye-Link
Communicators ($35)--a set of silent keyboard
transmitters and headset displays. Type a message of
up to 22 characters on the QWERTY arm attachment,
and it'll appear on the other
communicator's LCD display up to 200 feet
Instant-message junkies can chat
without being tied to a computerno need to
"BRB" (be right back) if the contraption
is strapped to your limb. Others can join in so more
than two mini-spies can stay in the loop.

communicators can tap into the messages. You've
got to switch broadcast channels to stay secret.
Also, 200 feet may seem like a lot, but neighbors
down the block may be too far away to play.
Typing a message isn't speedy,
but the Eye-Link Communicator's stealth
capability is indispensable for a secret agent on
the go. Vicky Hallett
