View Life Through Your Eyes, Not a Viewfinder

Looxcie is an extension of your eyes, continuously recording everything you see. There are no tiny viewfinders, screens, or buttons to worry about--once turned on, Looxcie records it all. With Looxcie, you won't be stuck behind a camcorder; you'll be fully present in the moment.

With the free Looxcie App, Looxcie turns your compatible device into a viewfinder, remote control, and video editor. Simply turn on Looxcie, personalize the fit for your ear, and use the smartphone viewfinder to align Looxcie with your field of vision. After that, you're free to carry on with life. Looxcie features automatic focus, automatic light adjustment, and a broad field of vision. It does all the work, so you're free to focus on what's really important.

Freedom to Capture Life's Unexpected "Looxcie Moments"

People buy video cameras to remember special events, such as graduations, performances, and sports events, but more often than not, they fail to get the spontaneous moments that make those events so special. With Looxcie, you capture everything as you live it, so you'll never miss those "Looxcie Moments."

See something memorable? Simply press the Instant Clip button on the headset to save a clip of the last thirty seconds. If you want to share a moment immediately, you can use the Instant Share feature of Looxcie to email the clip or post it to Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube. Simply press and hold the Instant Clip button on Looxcie, and Looxcie automatically sends your clip via your iPhone or Android smartphone to your favorite site. With Looxcie, social video is effortless.

Looxcie is simple to use. There's no worrying about buttons or whether the device is recording. Just wear Looxcie and relax. You won't even notice it's there until you see something that you wish you'd captured on video--and then you'll realize that you already did.

Automatically Stores up to Five Hours of Footage

Looxcie has enough storage for five hours of continuous video capture, so you can wear it without worrying if you'll run out of storage space. Once the five-hour storage capacity is reached, new video automatically replaces the oldest video. That means you always have the most recent five hours.

Looxcie also features up to four hours of permanent clip storage. When you want to save a special moment, create and save a video clip--even while the camera is still recording video--by pressing the Instant Clip button.

Capture, Edit, and Share Right Away

Once you've recorded video with Looxcie, editing and sharing it with others is a cinch. You can edit video clips directly on your iPhone or Android phone and share them with others via email, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

High-Quality Optics with Wide Field of Vision

Looxcie records in the HVGA format at 15 frames per second for quality video optimized for mobile devices. The lens provides a wide 62-degree field of view, so you won't miss any action.

Looxcie is designed for comfort, featuring a bendable earloop with memory wire for a personalized fit. Three sizes of hypoallergenic earbuds are included, and the earpiece swivels 180 degrees for wear in either ear.

Looxcie is also a Bluetooth headset, so you have one less device to carry. When you answer calls while capturing video, Looxcie automatically mutes the audio on the video to keep your calls private.

Looxcie is backed by a one-year warranty.

I will order another one, but how can I be sure that I will get the correct one?
John A. Herrin
Granted, I wore it under an ice hockey helmet (and Looxcie even says it isn't meant to be a ruggedized product).

I was so excited when I first saw this product since I've been looking for something like it for so long!

This product is a great idea. A small wearable camera. Who wouldn't want that?

Well, unfortunately, there are a number of flaws with this device.

For one, the quality is not very good. 15 frames per second and low resolution. This means your videos are not going to look as good as the example videos. Also, the camera has a somewhat narrow field of vision. It would be much better if it taped a wider angle, because you are not going to be that good at aiming the thing. (You can kinda see the effect in their sample video on YouTube where the guy proposes to his girlfriend and video tapes mostly her chest... it's involuntarily funny).

Also, somehow the camera would need a serious image stabilizer. I have no idea how that would work with a camera like that, but the reality is that people move their heads a lot and very fast and with the low frame rate and resolution, that is a problem to begin with, and even if that was better, people watching your videos are still going to get disoriented or worse, unless you seriously restrict your movements.

The device also doesn't seem to be very sturdy. My ear-plug part broke off the first day. Granted, I wore it under an ice hockey helmet (and Looxcie even says it isn't meant to be a ruggedized product). But it's not like I took a shot to the head. It was just pushing it under a relatively tight helmet that did it, disappointingly.

The worst aspect of this product however is what must go down as one of the oddest technical and business decisions of all time: The camera requires a smart phone to operate. You can now use an Android phone as well as an iPhone. That is mandatory. I have no idea why. Granted, it is a cute to use the phone display as a view finder. Kudos for that.

Hey, if you're expecting HD quality video on a device you wear over your ear...well, you're kinda out of luck at the moment (though I'm sure that's coming in the not too distant future). But this device actually records better video than I expected. Of course, maybe I just had low expectations. I think really though, I just had realistic expectations and the Looxcie has met or exceeded those. I was thrilled to see this device in the pages of Popular Science a couple months ago, then bummed to find out that it was not available for the iPhone at that time. Luckily they got the iPhone version ready before the Christmas season and my wife hit a home run by making sure it was under the tree in time.

I've only been using the Looxcie for one day so far (since Christmas), but I've recorded a bunch of clips and also downloaded the entire video buffer (a welcome new feature) to my Mac (a very simple process) and the video looked quite good. Yeah, it's a little grainy, but not bad. It's certainly better than my ability to remember every detail of every moment. Also, it looks like they have a new feature coming to iPhones that adds 30fps at 480 resolution, so the quality will be even better (granted with a shorter record time).

I've never seen a device like this before, so I'm willing to live with it not quite being everything to everyone at this point. I'm sure it will get better and even at its current stage I'd say it's pretty darn good. The biggest downside for me is that it seem quite big compared to a standard bluetooth headset. I was concerned that I would get a lot of weird looks and stares from people. But, I quickly realized that most people either were not concerned with what I was wearing on my ear or just thought it was an old school blue tooth headset. I do wish it was a bit smaller though...but I'm sure that will come in time as well. Overall I'm quite happy with the device so far.

I was so excited when I first saw this product since I've been looking for something like it for so long! I've seen other similar products, but they are so bulky and not at all practical. Looxcie is immediately different in that it is so easy to handle. But Looxcie isn't just a camera, it's a bluetooth headset too. This thing is unbelievable! I was able to make calls and answer incoming calls. And as if that wasn't enough, this is almost a "too good to be true" product given its great price point and ease of installation. If you have an iPhone or Android, you can download it from the control panel where you usually pair bluetooth-devices. Be sure to download the FREE apps from Appstore or Android market (just run the app - it's that easy!) There's two apps - LooxcieMoments and LooxcieCam. I liked LooxcieMoments best as it records constantly in the background when you wear the device and put it in record mode. With one press of a button you save the last 30 seconds. I used this over and over when my 8 year old was trying to explain to his big sister what Viagra (based on a commercial he had seen). It was hilarious and I never would have been able to do the story justice without the Looxcie!!! And speaking of kids, you can also edit the clips on the phone and share them - clips can be up to 30 minutes long. Although the quality isn't as good as video, you need to know that this product isn't meant to be used that way. It's basically a "re-do" resource that is able to capture the times when you should have had the video camera on! Given that, the quality of the Looxcie-footage is perfect.

Looxie is extremely easy to use. I can't overstate this since I am not particularly good at this type of thing - I'm a stay at home that just wanted to capture moments from my kids' lives!
