Pivothead Video Glasses Offer Impressive Quality
March 2, 2012 | Hogan Keyser
Sample Video from Pivothead Glasses:
By design, Pivothead's camera lens is too large to blend completely into the glasses frame, though it's far more discrete (and comfortable to use) than the GoPro HD Hero2. It's mounted at a 90-degree angle, so you can expect to record whatever you're looking at, assuming your eyes are focused directly in front of you. There's built-in optical image stabilization, which will definitely come in handy for day and night captures alike. The frames feel quite solid, and they're stylish as well. We drew a few curious looks while walking around the office and down the street, though some models will surely jump out more than others. There's a micro-USB port for charging the glasses, downloading files and adjusting settings (Windows, Mac and Android apps will be available at launch). Since there's no wireless connectivity included with this iteration, you'll need to use OTG to make adjustments in Android. Most settings can be adjusted directly on the glasses as well, with a trio of LEDs providing feedback.
