How to Make Spy Glasses


If you want to have a concealed recording device that you can use with no one knowing, you can turn a pair of ray bans into a pair of video recording spy glasses for not a lot of money. You can create this with a spy camera, a pair of sunglasses with mirrored lenses and a video camera that will fit in your pocket. You will also need some experience in connecting wires, so this is not a project for everyone.

Things You’ll Need : Spy camera with RCA composite ports, Wire cutters, 24-gauge wire or smaller, Electrical tape, Soldering kit (optional), Shrink tubing (optional), Solar shield sunglasses, Hot glue, RCA composite cable, Miniature video camera


  • Strip away the main insulation from the spy camera’s cable to reveal the four wires within it. Make sure you know which wire is for what purpose. Usually, yellow is video, white is audio, red is power and black is ground. Cut these wires in two with one scissor snip about 3 to 4 inches from the camera.
