"Heres a neat concept - take a bluetooth headset and throw in a camera that see's everything you see. Now add an Android app that allows you to turn your phone into a viewfinder, remote control, and editing tool for creating clips (up to 30 minutes in length), and you may as well be on your way to becoming a hybrid cyborg! This neat little device from Looxcie is perfect for those who are into almost-live vlogging (video blogging), or just want to take out the effort of transferring video and editing it on a computer to share with family and friends."
Definitely an interesting idea in our always connected world that we live in now. I personally wouldn't want to do this all the time but when I'm on vacation I think it would be a neat way to share some of the things I was doing. Combined with easy updating from an Android phone, this is at least a well implemented idea! The headset, which doubles as a normal BT headset for talking as well, looks very similar to the Plantronics Voyager Pro that I own. There's no confusing this with anything sleek though. Its going to be rather obvious on your ear so fashionistas need not apply! Of course there is that $200 price to get past...
