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.
Customizable Earpiece for Stability and Comfort
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.
Works as a Bluetooth Headset
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.

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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
