I propose a microphone that glows bright red when it is recording.

       there could be any number of recording devices attached to a microphone, how would it know if they were recording or not, and which ones were to cause it to go red or not? perhaps simpler just to make it glow red when it's switched on...

       Although a good idea, the microphone itself is not a recording device. There are already mics with lights but not for the purpose you describe so I will bun for the thought. +
