FIlmmaking is enjoyably hard enough, let along when you are trying to capture that unexpected moment. That instant laugh, cry, or even load bang that causes all of us to turn in anticipation is often missed in the moment. It is only when we reach for the camera, turn it on, position, focus, and start to shoot that we begin to capture these fleeting events in retrospect. Well, not any more.
The Looxcie the first practical wearable video camera with the ability to upload clips realtime. Looxcie is also a Bluetooth audio headset that is capable of stream video to your smartphone (HTC, LG, and Motorola), for what some would say creates a Digital Life Recorder (DLR).
We plan on doing a lot of practical field testing of the Looxcie over the next few weeks in order to identify practical workflow processes. While this is a must buy from a video graphic tool point of view, we need to document and share how to integrate it in the social filmmaking network.
