In my February, 2008 post titled “A New Cellphone Accessory”, I requested that someone invent a combined bluetooth headset and video camera, mocked up as below:
On this occasion, I was only a few years ahead of my time. Behold the Looxcie (Look-see, get it?) wearable camcorder:
Looxcie takes a sound-bite/tweet approach to video. It is always on, but if you see something you wish to capture, press the button on the back, and Looxcie saves a clip of the last 30 seconds it, ummmm, saw. It can also function as a bluetooth headset.
Phone app is now available for Android devices, and support for iPhone and Blackberry is coming soon.
All this can be yours for $199. Visit http://www.looxcie.com.
