Watch out for that girl, laddie; you might be talking over her head but into her microphone.
AS Willie Shakespeare once said, – “There’s more to this than meets the eye!” This, in the present case, happens to be the bodice of a Sweet Young Thing, said bodice containing microphone, batteries, antenna and transmitterâ€”constituting a miniature radio station with a range of 200-300 feet.
The West German device is but one of several now being used in industrial espionageâ€”the art of swiping your competitor’s business secrets without his knowing. It works like this:
Sweet Young Thing has date with two scientists from Firm A. Mike concealed in the bosom of her party dress picks up their shop talk and other bodice equipment transmits it to operative of Firm B waiting outside in a car equipped with tape recorder. Sweet Young Thing gets paid off by Firm B.
We realize that all’s fair in love and war but isn’t this going too far?
