New Bluetooth Ear Set Doubles As Stealthcam
Looxcie has just updated its Bluetooth ear set that doubles as a camcorder and a storage device. The unit weighs in at just 22 grams and stores video as MP4 files. Of course, with a stealth cam, you could capture a lot of video without raising any unwarranted attention. Hopefully people do not use it for the wrong reasons, but I guess that risk runs with any new technology now a days.
Before you laugh at the idea of this tiny unit being a video camera, note that the two models available offer either 5 or 10 hours of video storage, respectively. The user can opt to record video in either 320p or 480p and can instantly share clips to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or iCloud.
There are even some Android and iOS apps out there that allow you to get a live visual feed of what you’re shooting. With Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR and eSCO, you’ll be able to get 10 meters of range on phone calls.
Make sure you bring your charger along if you expect to record a full ten hours of continuous video as the battery lasts for only about four hours. Other than that minor setback, the unit features DSP noise reduction for optimal audio sound. $199 gets you the 8GB model, while $20 less gets you half the size (4GB).
