Life in HD: $150 Video Glasses Challenge Google
Google Glass out of your price range? Try something with a few less features for 1/10th the cost.
With Google Glass right around the corner there seem to be many competitors popping up to take a claim to the emerging market. The United Kingdom based company SunnyCam is doing just that. While their SunnyCam does not have near the same capabilities as Google Glass; it also does not have the same price tag. At $150 the SunnyCam comes in at about 10% of the $1500 price that Google Glass is expected to hit the market at. With their HD(720p at 30fps) glasses that record up to 2 hours of video, these glasses will allow you to partake in your normal daily life while keeping your hands free.
Stories like the recent firing of Rutgers head Coach Mike Rice and the recent release of video footage of the Florida Bus aid assaulting a disabled child are great example of how our society has embraced technological innovation associated to video emersion and having the ability to have quick access to recording events that could have interest to our society.
Recent reports of Australian Rugby referee's wearing head mounted cameras may spike interest in NFL fans after the barrage of controversial calls from last year's replacement referees.
There is no doubt you will find devices like SunnyCam and Google Glass at events like Lollapalooza and Coachella; as well as the ski slopes and the best surf spots on the California coast.
