Hammacher Schlemmer's $300 "Third Eye" camcorder looks silly planted in the middle of the model's head. I, however, will be wearing it as an eyepatch.
The Third Eye Video Camera.
oh yes to robotic eyepatch, does it pan about in it’s little round socket like a manic robot eye should?
The Boss could have worn it as a codpiece for a reverse angle shot.
Put it on facing behind you, and link it’s video out port to a small view-port LCD over one eye, eye-tap style. Congratulations, you can now see both in front of you and behind you at the same time, without depth perception perhaps…
Whatever happened to that Korean made “camball” that showed up here a few months ago?
Hammacher should just outsource product development to The Onion and make their descent into self parody complete.
Oh man! It’s like a cyborg Mad-Eye Moody!
That would be totally sweet.
Or you could be a film pirate! Sailing the seven torrent trackers, sitting in theaters and recording movies with your innocent camcorder eyepatch! Plundering and taking what ye will!
The costume possibilities are endless.
Vannevar Bush would be proud!
/r/ pics of it being used as an eyepatch.
Eyepatch – fantastic, on the money
one step closer to cyborgification.
cervical cap cam coming right up.
Worn as eyepath = Look cool and make POV movies all at once
hey, didn’t you all do a post about a woman missing an eye that wanted to know about the possibility of having a camera or somehting in her eye socket. Sign her up for the eye patch camcorder.
Get two and make stereo images. Use a seeing eye dog if you use ’em as eye patches, though.
why is it being modeled by Aaron Eckhart?
It’s only so big because it’s got everything inside: camera, SD-card interface and power source. A mobile phone’s camera is only this big:

I’d buy that..
Looks like the Black Jewel from Morecock’s ‘Hawkmoon’ series.
But could be an eyepatch, sure.
It would need Solid-Eye like functionality before can I consider buying it.
Put one on your dog! See the world through its eyes!
320 x 240 resolution lol
@MDGreen #7: Indeed, if you combine this with Evernote and an Eye-Fi card, then Bush’s Memex is actually and truly available now. (That is, if you can get past the creep factor of trusting your documentstream to a company whose EULA says they “will not monitor, edit, or disclose the contents of Licensee’s private communications, except in the following circumstances: (i) if required to do so by applicable Laws”)
Funny, my first impression was that it looks like a tefillin for some sort of Cyber-Judaism. The philosophical ramifications of using a camera for a phylactery are kind of mind-blowing.
“tefillin for some sort of Cyber-Judaism.”
Camera! Apply directly to the forehead!
Why not just put it in a hat?
Or an mp3 player you can clip to your shirt pocket.
