Unlike most people however, these individuals have nothing but time on their side, which lends to the wide range of implements they inevitably dream up.
And here's the link from the article to a bunch of hand crafted inmate escape utilities:

Yeah, some of our best minds end up in there. =( It's a shame, I really wish that the entire "system" would be re-designed. I'm not talking just the states, world wide we have prison problems. =( =(

The picture in the op is a bug used to listen in on guard conversations. That's some smart stuff right there.
