The targetted price is $199, mass manufacturing to start in March. It’s an LCOS based headmounted 800×600 display connected with an Android box that you can put in your pocket. That Android powered box runs apps, such as the Biggifi remote controlling app, it can also output Android to your HDTV using the MHL connector. It can tether through your smartphone for internet connectivity and stream the video from the headset to any Android supported live video streaming services, be it ustream, google+ hangouts, justin.tv and more.
Panasonic is launching this new camcorder with a new 4K2K sensor but still recording using a 1080p engine. It has many new improved features such as the optics, rendering, colors, clarity and more.
I filmed 3 samples using different bitrate settings using the camera which you can see and download below.
The Motorola Kopin Golden-i is being showcased at the Verizon booth at CES 2012, demonstrating hands-free wearable computing user interfaces for Industrial uses such as Construction, Medical, Public safety, Utilities and more. I’ve been using this for the past 2 months to attempt to have a wearable computing augmented video-blogging system, using Google+ Hangouts On Air with the headmounted display showing a live chat and live status updates from Google+, Twitter, Email alerts and more.
Finally the camcorder makers have figured out to include WiFi in their camcorders and features to upload the videos directly to YouTube, Facebook and other services. This is going to be absolutely awesome.
You can fix your camera to it and it’ll fly up and do some aerial photography and video for you, with a gyroscope based stabilizer.
Uploads to YouTube, live streams to Ustream. Awesome!
This is how I was walking around the ARM TechCon 2011, with the OMAP3530 Powered Kopin Golden-i Headmounted display (voice-controlled and with head-tracking) to monitor the live Ustream IRC chat, a USB webcam on my head streaming live video to Ustream through the Marvell Armada 618 Powered OLPC XO-1.75 in my bag (using another netbook when Marvell was showcasing the XO-1.75 at their booth), a T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot ($50/3GB/month/prepaid/$141-Mifi), and my nearly 4-year old Sanyo HD1000 (9mbitps 720p) with the external Sennheiser MKE400 shotgun microphone.
I also have the new higher quality JVC GC-PX10 but its 24/36mbitps 1080p50 recording bitrate is too high to upload on the relatively slow upload speed at this conference. At the San Francisco Downtown University Campus last weekend, the upload speed was 100mbitps so there I filmed all 16 videos at the OLPC Summit with that camera, for most of which you can even download the full original camera sample video file using Google Docs separately linked under each video.
