The Looxcie Wearable Video Camera Never Stops Recording


The problem with YouTube is that you can only share stuff you happened to be recording. The Looxcie, a $200 video camera that you wear on your ear, proposes a simple solution: record everything, all the time.
Here's the idea: You wear the Looxcie on your ear and it records everything you see, roughly as you see it. The camera can hold up to four hours of video (in crummy 480×320 at 15fps); when it runs out of space, it starts dumping the oldest footage—it's not made for collectingclips, it's for capturing them in the moment.

Okko said...

Mr Jack House said...

LoneIslander said...

Don't think I would need this.

Suciô Sanchez said...

Why would people watch? (Unless you're a porn star.)

miecak said...

Hm, doesn't seem very useful :P

Soon we're all going to have cameras embedded in our eyes and it will stream in real time on the internet and everybody will know exactly what we're doing exactly when we're doing it.

That pretty cool, yet scary

Tyrome Grim said...

Wow, that is intense, just wait for the day when everyone has one of these and is used in court as an alibi.

Mayhem said...

Looks like something from a sci-fi film :D Awesome!

Ronoh said...

This could be very creepy...

Mark said...

Looks a bit too obtrusive for my liking. I'll wait until they're a bit smaller (and have better quality videos!)

Fred said...

This could make for some interesting POV shots. ;)

HTT said...

happybuffet said...

Interesting. I might look into this. It'd prolly look strange to be wearing this all day though.

Jegbd7 said...

Gurney said...

Izi said...

The design is cool but it doesnt look useful

Mellisa said...

Voacaroo said...

I would hate to walk around with that stucked to my head!

Sinisa said...

Alixander said...

I can see a few problems with recording everything you do, but still an awesome idea.

Shimizu said...

i'd use one on each ear and then make a fucking 3d movie of my youth, then, when i reach half of my life(around 45) i'd stop anything and then just watch my youth, so, i'd be twice young and never old

Kief said...

That looks pretty sweet. Thanks for this.

NameBrands said...

looks neat but 15fps kinda blows

cooperlife said...

15fps? that is really choppy. They should have made it 20fps at least.

MikeyB said...

That's pretty fuckin sweet. Throw that on for a night of boozin.

thenitefalls said...

It's like recording a real life FPS haha

Big Poppa said...

i like the design of it, its not a toy, and its not militarized, its functional.

April said...

Sure, as long as it isn't streaming through skynet...

AG said...

looks cool like a blutooth, but i think people will be like wtf.

Sk8rjwd said...
