Spy Gadgets Galore: The CIA’s Flickr

The CIA is attempting to amp up its public presence with a new Flickr account, created in February. It’s a fun browse, with a plethora of photos and explanations of all sorts of historical devices, costumes, and vehicles, including WWII code-breaking machines, cameras disguised as all sorts of things, robot fish, and the hollow coin and stereoscope (for viewing photos of enemy territory in 3-D) below:
