Kids these days can't do anything that won't be caught from a tech-savvy parent. You can download software that'll spy on your networked computers. You can get them a phone that will turn you into a virtual private eye. And this gadget can keep tabs on anything that's typed on their keyboard.

The Key Catcher is advertised as just something to use for yourself for your own personal records, but it'll obviously easily end up being used to track every single key stroke that's made on, say, your child's or employee's computer. From ThinkGeek: "Key Katcher plugs in between your keyboard and your computer. A microcontroller interprets the data, and stores information in the non-volatile memory (which retains the information even when there is a loss of power.) This means that the Key Katcher device can be unplugged, and the information will not be lost."

It's available for around $100. Via Me, My Coke, & I
