Why not just put it in a hat?
Or an mp3 player you can clip to your shirt pocket.
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..
why is it being modeled by Aaron Eckhart?
Camera! Apply directly to the forehead!
Eyepatch – fantastic, on the money
one step closer to cyborgification.
It would need Solid-Eye like functionality before can I consider buying it.
Get two and make stereo images. Use a seeing eye dog if you use ‘em as eye patches, though.
Put one on your dog! See the world through its eyes!
oh yes to robotic eyepatch, does it pan about in it’s little round socket like a manic robot eye should?
cervical cap cam coming right up.
320 x 240 resolution lol
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.
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.
Vannevar Bush would be proud!
/r/ pics of it being used as an eyepatch.
Worn as eyepath = Look cool and make POV movies all at once
“tefillin for some sort of Cyber-Judaism.”
@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”)
Looks like the Black Jewel from Morecock’s ‘Hawkmoon’ series.
But could be an eyepatch, sure.
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.
