Default Looxcie - Social Networking, Now With Video

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.looxcie.com/' target='_blank'>http://www.looxcie.com/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"</em><em>Heres</em><em> a neat concept - take a </em><em>bluetooth</em><em> headset and throw in a camera that </em><em>see's</em><em> 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 </em><em>Looxcie</em><em> is perfect for those who are into almost-live </em><em>vlogging</em><em> (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."</em></p><p><em><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1284662855.usr307.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></em></p><p>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! &nbsp;Of course there is that $200 price to get past...</p>

Is it water/snow proof? This looks perfect for extreme sports enthusiasts. Snowboarding or surfing would be ideal for something like this. Live action shots.

I'm not sure how rugged it would be, but I'd imagine it had better have some rugged properties. Otherwise it could start raining and fry out

I don't see a strap anywhere to wrap it to your head, so I really doubt it's meant for rugged sports...nothing that couldn't be fixed with a big rubber band though.

Looks like something from a sci-fi movie. But it would be nice for those occasions where you didn't want to take or operate a camcorder. And it would be great for recording videos where you need your hands free. I wish the record time was a bit longer though.
