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 help of the free Looxcie App, Looxcie turns your Android smartphone into a viewfinder, remote control, and video editor. Simply turn on Looxcie, adjust it over your ear, and look at the smartphone viewfinder to align Looxcie with your field of vision. After that, you're free to put your phone away and carry on with life. The camcorder 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 games, but more often than not, they fail to video the spontaneous moments that make those events so special. With Looxcie, you capture everything as you experience it, so you'll never miss those "Looxcie Moments."

When you have a Looxcie Moment, you simply press the Instant Clip button on the headset to save a clip of the last thirty seconds you experienced. If you want to share the moment immediately, you can use the Instant Share feature of Looxcie to immediately email the clip or post it to Facebook or YouTube. Simply press the Instant Clip button on Looxcie for three seconds, and Looxcie will immediately send your clip through your Android smartphone to the preferred 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 with Free App

When paired with the free Android App, Looxcie has enough temporary storage for five hours of continuous video capture, so you can wear it without worrying whether 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 of video.

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 thanks to the free Looxcie Android App. You can edit video clips directly on your Android smartphone and immediately share moments with others via email, Facebook, and YouTube.

High-Quality Optics with Wide Field of Vision

Looxcie records in the HVGA format at 15 frames per second for quality video sized for mobile devices. The lens provides a wide 62-degree field of view, so you won't miss any action. The battery lasts up to four hours, depending on use.

Customizable Earpiece for Stability and Comfort

Looxcie is designed for comfort. The design features 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.

Works as a Bluetooth Headset

Looxcie is also a Bluetooth headset for your Android smartphone, 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.

As a gadget nut, I ordered this the day it became available on Amazon and had it shipped next day (ok, so an impatient gadget nut). The concept is awesome - capture and share those expected or unexpected moments in life as I see them, how I see them. The videos you see on youtube were promising and I was in need of a new bluetooth headset, so I bought it.

First thing that I noticed was how nicely everything was packaged. I took the Looxcie out of the box and set it to charge via the wall outlet adapter - Don't want to run out of batteries on my day out! I love the design of this thing, looks so slick! After it was fully charged, pairing to my Android phone is a breeze. With the Looxcie software downloaded, it was time to put this thing on my ear and see what it can do!

...And that's where things started going downhill! First of all, the Looxcie does NOT fit on my ear correctly. I tried all 3 sizes of ear buds and on both ears (in case I had a deformity in one ear of which I wasn't aware) and with my glasses on and off. I read the instructions and my Looxcie did look bent as shown in their images anfter several attempts. Perhaps its the weight of the camera boom, but the Looxcie just droops down such that the camera is not eye level (aiming more at my jaw line). I would have to walk around with my head tilted up in order for the camera boom to be level with the ground. I had my wife try it as well, maybe its the size and shape of my head and she experienced the same issues, no matter how we shaped the flexible ear-piece.

After much fiddling to the point where my outer-ear was a bit sore, I managed to get the Looxcie on at an acceptable viewing angle. Any quick head jolts and I risk having the camera boom shift slightly downward again.

UPDATE: As of today Looxcie updated the firmware on the device and added a new phone app and new desktop app. This is a major improvement to the device as it now adds the ability to record in 480p @30fps which I've tested and is a HUGE improvement. You can also save clips directly to the phone's SD card now instead of just on the Looxcie device. They also allow livestreaming now which is awesome.

Ok, so I was extremely excited to get this product and ordered it as soon as it became available. Since I've had it I've probably recorded about 2 hours of video with it at various places with varying noise levels. So here's my impression.

For the price it is a really nice piece of hardware, I've had no trouble with the build quality, it's comfortable and very light when wearing and adjusts to fit virtually any way you want it. The video quality is exactly what I expected it to be. Nothing great but not horrible considering the size of the device. I love the Android app that this device utilizes, you can use your phone as a "viewfinder" and Looxcie is very easy to pair with your phone (Nexus 2.2 in my case). You can save notable clips on the device by pushing the clip button making 30-second clips or make custom length clips through the app. Once you make the clips you can hook Looxcie to the computer and do what you want with them there, or upload them to the place of your choosing through the Looxcie App. Playback in the app is a little choppy but much more smooth on the computer. Using the device as a bluetooth headset has been great for me. I usually run into problems where the volume is never high enough but my Looxcie is so loud it hurts (luckily you can turn it down). Call quality is good and I have no problems hearing anyone or with them hearing me when talking through it.

Yep jumped right in the day it was available. Not a bad price for bleeding edge though I'm sure it'll drop soon enough. Conceptually great! I love the potential! Paired immediately and Android app installed and works though the images have a pixelated quality along edges. Very cool app though! Only had for about 2 hours now. First thing was to rotate for left ear. Manual doesn't make clear what exactly rotates. Figured out it was just the earbud itself (makes sense) however when rotating it gently and smoothly the top half of the earbud clam-shell fell off. It was glued so technically its broken but a few drops of plastic adhesive fixed it. I'm not ready to return it without playing. Maybe later if anything else happens. Going to play with the actual video functionality now and write more later.

Day two. Played more with the video. Other than the previously mentioned edgyness everything seems as described. This product DOES NOT stream to or thru the handset. The real issue today is the audio quality. In a word it's atrocious! I have many many Bluetooth headsets including some real bargains and this is by far the absolute worst incoming quality I've ever experienced (that's why the stars dropped). I think there must be a defect with my unit but I'm not ready to return it yet. Again audio quality is lower than anything I've ever used. I am still so enamored with the potential of the device I will keep playing until I must decide about returning/exchanging it.

Third and forth day. Looxcie has GREAT customer service! One of the engineers was reading the reviews here and jumped right on it and contacted their customer service (on Sunday) and made arrangements for a replacement.

Before the replacement arrived today.
