I posted several times in the past news about cameras that you can wear and use to film snippets of your life. Most of the time it has been in relation to some research (HP one shot, MS myLifeBits) and the camera used was a sort of prototype.
Now, I run onto Liquid Image, and let me tell you that I am impressed by the variety of mass market (read affordable) products they have embedding a camera in goggles of various shapes, including some for underwater snorkling and squba diving.
The quality of the movies taken is amazing and you don’t need to do anything. Just wear the goggles as you would for skiing or surfing and there you are. At the end of the day you can upload the movie to your media centre and share it with your friends.
And, of course, it is just a matter of time before you’ll be able to stream your own experience in HD wirelessly, thanks to advanced wireless networks like LTE.
I can easily imagine WiFi blanketing a ski slope to let people broadcast their run to their friends.
What is amazing is the easiness and the low cost! It can really become a new fancy for the new year. And just think about the amount of storage that will be needed to store all those clips. Not to mention the new apps that will spring up to manage those clips…
It is a visual world, and it is going to happen, ’cause we are visual animals.
