Ever wondered what’s inside a head mounted spy gadget? Well, now you have the answer, there was somebody curios enough to take apart a robot toy which had a camera and eye piece, considering the size, isn’t a James Bond type of gadget so don’t expect to find any nanotechnology inside, but you can see how the LCD displays work. Even your LCD monitor uses the same solutions, only in bigger.
This post is for people curios enough to dismountÂ similar electronics, my advice : don’t, you won’t find any components inside which you can use, or there are hard to remove from the pcb and if you damage the flexible pcb or any other part, you probably can’t repair it

Jim Lee: “It looks pretty good, weighs practically nothing, and disassembles easily. This paint roller handle is actually adjustable. Just a twist of the handle and it extends up to 19 inches. The umbrella itself opens to about 19 inches in diameter. It is necessary to remove the headband and punch a hole in the very top for the handle. Otherwise, no modificatins to the umbrella are needed. As for the handle, remove the plastic roller holders, file off the little burrs that hold them on, and you are in business.”
My opinion :Â you can use it as fun project and discover some electronics, or you can use it as a spy-project which i don’t encourage because it could get you in trouble. Be careful how you use it, good luck building it!
