Looxcie is a $200 camera you plug into your ear, which then records everything you see, following your field of vision. Several hours are recorded, with new stuff overwriting the oldâ€¦ and if you saw anything interesting, you click its button and have the last 30 seconds saved and shared on YouTube and other networks. To tune and manage the camera and see the clips you download an app onto an Android phone like Google Nexus.
This looks like a very interesting tool (albeit with a name that could be easier to spell). Often when you get out a camera a) the thing you spotted is already over, or b) people suddenly take on an â€œofficial video cameraâ€ posture, completely changing what they just did (and babies may just grab for your camera and stop whatever they were doing). Even with Looxcie some people may still ask you whatâ€™s that thing in your ear, but as it looks a bit like a mobile phone headset (indeed you can also use it as that) maybe they wonâ€™t ask, or adjust their behavior. Well, some may think it looks dorky, but as the saying goes, â€œno one can make you feel inferior without your permission.â€
Looxcie is the first wearable video cam that captures everything and lets you share instantly with your social network through your smartphone. Looxcie allows you to participate in the moment, while capturing it. Now you can instantly share your clips to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
