Every so often I see a piece of mobile technology that I really want to get my hands on. Most recently, that’s been the Looxcie 2 – which is probably best described as a wearable camcorder.
Now, that in itself is nothing new – it’s possible to buy a set of sunglasses with a built-in mini video camera or even a small digital camera that fits to your cycle helmet – but this has two distinct tricks up its sleeve.
First, it’s also a Bluetooth headset with twin microphones and digital noise reduction.
And secondly, if you download an app for your iPhone or Android device, your phone becomes a viewfinder with remote control. Not just that, but it can help you edit your clips and can upload them to social networks with just one click.
That’s the theory – but what’s the reality? The answer is in my video review, which was shot using the Looxcie 2.
