Wear A Camcorder On Your Ear

Ear Camera

The Looxcie is a $199 camcorder that you wear over your ear. The Looxcie sends video via Bluetooth to a smartphone to record and share it. At the moment it is only compatible with Android 2.0 phones, but iPhones and Blackberries are coming before the end of the year. The Looxcie can also be a Bluetooth headset for your phone if you don’t mind wearing the camera.

The camera records video in the mp4 format, but there’s no record button. It records whenever it is on. It will store up to five hours of footage. It records at 480 by 320 and only 15 frames a second. You can monitor it on your phone. It’s not really a spy camera as there’s a red tally light. Press an instant share button on your phone and 30 seconds of the video is instantly sent to your Facebook account. See video recorded by the Looxcie.

Now we just need to think of some cool reasons to use it. Athletics are an obvious one. Or when you’re doing a tutorial and want to not think about the video. How about during class to help you decipher your hand written, but unreadable notes. Would my cat wear it for a cat-cam? Military or police could wear it to document events. How would you use it?
