Eyeglasses To Post Video Straight To FacebookPieter posted in "Goodies". 5 years, 10 months ago
A clever Facebook status update or an Instagrammed picture will only tell your friends so much. What if you could show them exactly where you are and what you’re doing. Or “seeing”, to be more precise? A team of Seattle-based entrepreneurs called ZionEyez, is currently working on a new product that will make crappy cam-phone videos a thing of the past, and make people forget about Flip cameras in no-time.
Eyez™ look like a regular pair of eyeglasses, but they integrate a 720p HD video camera that can record data on the 8GB of built-in memory, or to a computer via Bluetooth v3.0 or Micro USB. The real innovation lies in the fact that they can transfer footage wirelessly to most iPhone and Android devices: “After a one-time download of the “Eyez™” smartphone and tablet app, users can wirelessly broadcast the video in real time to their preferred social networking website.“
In other words, Eyez™ let you record live video hands-free and through the best possible viewfinder, and publish it to Facebook instantly. It’s also very covert, so at some point in the near future we’re going to have to be wary of every shady person wearing shades.
Users can simply tap the power sensor, open the Eyez™ app, and then forget about it. Several networking sites, including Qik and LiveStream, will broadcast to users profiles’ and save the videos to cloud storage.
WYSIWYF? (What you see is what you Facebook).
However, in order to start production, the company is seeking $55,000 in funding by allowing people to pre-order the HD video recording glasses through Kickstarter. You’ll save $49 per pair if you do so before July 31st 2011.
