This is the kind of item that gets a professional surveyor excited.
The DNR's Matt Dontz found this original cedar survey post in a stream near Atlanta, in Montmorency County recently. The General Land Office of the U.S. government did the survey of Michigan's townships in 1850. The post was set to mark a section, or quarter corner and were driven into the ground each half-mile. It was preserved by the water, Forestry and Surveying experts agree the find is extremely rare, even with today's GPS technology.
Need to record an interview, event, or meeting without anyone knowing? Uncrate.com suggests you tuck this Button Spy Camera behind your shirt. Designed to stick through a button hole with the main electronics remaining hidden, this miniature camera takes 480p video and can snap p1280x1024 JPEG stills, all of which it records to 4GB of built-in flash memory. Sure, the specs are nothing mind-blowing, but to be able to gather intel without being caught, it's not bad. Just don't forget to wear something with black buttons.
