This wearable camera films life from your point of view

We’ve seen all sorts of wearable cameras for capturing life’s precious moments, and now there’s a head-worn option to capture the action as you see it. After showing off its headset at CES, LifeLogger has now turned to Kickstarter to bring the gadget to the masses. Capable of capturing up to eight hours of video, the camera has built-in GPS and WiFi connectivity for working in tandem with iOS and Android companion apps. It’s equipped with live streaming features too, so instantly beaming footage to a computer, tablet or smartphone is a breeze — as long as there’s a solid wireless internet connection, of course.

There’s no need to plug in the unit to grab the files either. LifeLogger uploads videos to a cloud-based repository through the aforementioned WiFi, organized by date or GPS coordinates and having undergone face detection, voice recognition and more for optimal future searching. The camera comes with a 32GB SD card for on-board storage of 720p video at 30fps and 5-megapixel stills. If snapshots are more what you’re after, you can expect 10-second photo burst and time lapse that’s capable of up to one photo per minute. If all of that sounds too good to pass up, a pledge of $169 or more will nab you a unit, with storage and video processing in tow that’s due to arrive just in time for the holidays.
