Capturing your point of view, invisibly

I wrote about these back in July when wearable tech company, ZionEyez, was raising funds through Kickstarter, which earned them almost $350,000 for their first production run. Since then, they've been working hard at producing their first video camera eyewear that any other spectacles you would see on the street. An evolution of the Steve Mann aesthetics, nobody would ever know that you're glasses are recording every moment. This invisible, ambient nature of the technology integration is exactly where wearable technology is heading...and I can't wait to see what's coming in 2012.

Engadget says: Sure, you may already lead an exciting life, but wouldn't it be great if you could broadcast those daily escapades -- you know, to all of your internet friends? ZionEyez hopes to deliver a method for sharing your point of view -- quite literally -- in realtime, across the web. The company's first product, a set of 720p embedded-camera eyeglasses called Eyez, houses a tiny camera to the left of the standard-size eyeglass lens, with a processor, Bluetooth and WiFi module embedded in the adjacent ear piece.

HD Video Recording Glasses for Facebook

This is one of the most exciting wearable technology efforts I have seen in a long time. ZionEyez is working on a pair of HD Video Recording Glasses for Facebook called Eyez™. The glasses include a tiny 720p HD video camera that is so tightly integrated into the eyewear, that you virtually cannot see it.

Eyez™ records live video data and takes pictures. The data can then be stored on the 8GB of flash memory within the Eyez™ glasses, transferred via Wifi/Bluetooth or Micro USB to a computer, or wirelessly transferred to most iPhone or 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, such as Facebook.

They are already funded nearly $300K on Kickstarter and plan to release their first line in Winter 2012. If you pledge $150 or more in the next few days, they'll send you a pair when they're ready.
