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.
You can also connect Looxcie to a PC or Mac via the USB connector, giving you access to all of your saved clips. Please note that a supported iPhone or Android device is required to create and save clips from the temporary storage, and that only saved clips may be accessed from your PC or Mac.
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.

Works as a Bluetooth Headset

Back to the topic, since it is Bluetooth, I can connect it to my phone wirelessly. and they recently released an app to live broadcast on their website. Which is an excellent feature to this camera. And it is 1 of the reason I want to buy this. Because everything that I broadcast will be available for later viewing for certain amount of days and the broadcast will be posted on Facebook and linked to the your channel.
They are 2 more version of the camera, LX2 and LX2 HD. I think the LX2 has better design then this version since it has more accessories and it can be your dash cam also. Even it seems to be built to last. But don't expect it will as tough as Go Pro. I am pretty sure if a car ran it over. This unit will be over.
I am glad that the company continuously support this version of the camera and reinvent its mobile software for us to use for free. However, I would like to see the company to release its API to public developers. So that we would able to write app for it. I can foresee when Google glass release in a reasonable price with a broader audience market. The company will be crushed by the overwhelmed apps for customer to choose from rather than its proprietary mobile app. If we ever learnt anything from failed Apple strategy before Steve Job was back in the game??
The quality is quite good 480p/30fps. The developers are constantly making improvements via firmware updates, and the "Looxcie Moments" feature now can run at 480p/30fps just as with the camcorder operation - it was formerly only 360p/15fps, which was a little choppy. You can still choose the lower rate for the sake of a longer video trail, but it's now your choice to make a time/quality trade off. The lower rate is easier to share if you don't need the top quality video in some instance - the file size is much smaller
In a firmware update they recently added "voice dialing" for Bt phones, and that works great. Really needed for legal CA driving. On the forums you can communicate directly with the developers, and they are interested in the feedback they get - voice dialing was an issue that customers such as myself brought up as essential. It works well as a phone headset, arguably better than my Plantronics Voyager Pro. The wind resistance is excellent, and the two mics are close to your mouth on the bottom side of the camera.
The video dynamic range is overall excellent - it works surprisingly well in low light. As for the fixed focus optics on this tiny gadget, they don't compete with my HD DSLR but are surprisingly good considering the small physical size. At the bottom line, the best camera is the one you happen to have with you, and in that regard this one is tops.
I have a Motorola Droid X and have had no compatibility or stability issues. All the functions work as expected. The natural Bt bandwidth limitation slows things down a bit, but they make the best of this. You can use the camera without the phone - don't even need to have the phone with you. However, it's necessary for getting the Looxcie set up in the first place so it aims right.
Overall, this device makes a lot of shooting possible that couldn't be done any other way, and I'm very happy about that.
Don't buy unless if you absolutely have to.
That all aside... I think I should be able to expect that the software that is required to run this device not crash my phone. The simple fact of the matter is that every time I leave the program running on my android phone and put the phone to sleep I come back to find I can't unlock the phone because it's using too much ram and/or processor so the phone is locked up. The only way to get back into my phone is to pull the battery.
If you can't even be bothered to test your software and make sure it doesn't crash a phone why should I tolerate the low quality of this camera?
I'm done... returned :P
