DejaView has released a wearable computer with one purpose, to capture video. The camera itself starts at $80, but to get the full working model one needs to get their CamWear 100, which costs
$300 $400 and can record 250 thirty second video clips. The DejaView wearable passively records, and when you request a clip, it's of the previous thirty seconds, not the thirty seconds after you hit the button. Their more expensive model, the CamWear 200XP costs $500 and can record four hours of video.
Update (June 12th, 2004):
They just announced that they've found someone to produce their product, sans expensive model.
"Deja View was demonstrating their interesting wearable camcorder. It contains their patent-pending technology that has created a camera/microphone unit less than an inch long and smaller than a nickel. Itís designed to be worn on your eyeglasses or hat. Itís attached by a wire to a PDA-sized remote unit that clips to a belt or waistband." - Exerpt from MSNBC.Posted by nym at June 21, 2003 07:37 PM | TrackBack
