External Contest: Looxcie – the wearable bluetooth camcorder

Written by Cameron Wright. Posted in Accessories, Contests, Mobile

Tagged: ,


The Looxcie is personally one of my favorite products from 2010.  It is a bluetooth headset that also records video.   This is not the high definition incredible clarity video – not in the least.  The choices are a resolution of 240 or 480.  Shooting in 240 allows you to continuously shoot for up to 5 hours of footage.  480 cuts the amount of filming down to just shy of 2 hours.

The Looxcie has been a great product for my fiancee and I these last few weeks.  You may or may not be aware of the fact that we just had a premature baby (almost 9 weeks early).  Due to his early birth he has been in the Neonatal ICU.  The NICU has a number of rules in place to protect the babies staying there.  Cell phones are banned from use as they are a breeding ground for germs.

Cameras are allowed but it isn’t necessarily always convenient to have a micro 4/3rds camera on your person when trying to take care of a very small little baby.  This is where the Looxcie shines the brightest.  I can place the Looxcie on my ear in recording mode and it will capture all the adorable little faces he makes.

The other time that I absolutely love the Looxcie is when I am at a trade show or any other event that may cause me to need to remember who I met, what we discussed, or any number of scenarios.  The Looxcie allowed me to keep track of the different exhibits that I made it to throughout our time at CES.

Here is your chance to get your very own Looxcie.  Between now and March 13th, Looxcie is giving away one unit per week.  You will have to go to their Facebook here to enter.  Good Luck
