SunnyCam Video Recording Eyewear at The Gadget Show

SunnyCam EyewearGoogle Glass might be du jour at the moment, but it’s expensive, unfashionable and of questionable benefit. Undoubtedly, it’ll get cheaper, less obtrusive and have more uses, but until then SunnyCam‘s HD video recording eyewear might be of more practical use. Simply, these are glasses with a tiny video camera in the bridge that cost only GB£100.

The SunnyCam is very much in the style of sports sunglasses. Although you can’t see it in the photos, the camera is in the glasses bridge and records at 720p to a microSD card, making it very suitable for PoV recording when it’s important to see what the wearer is seeing. The lens are easily swapped out for other tints as needed.

SunnyCam ControlsThe controls and storage are on the legs of the glasses and with only two buttons, are easy to use. Battery life is around 2.5 to 3 hours.

Ben takes me through the SunnyCam at The Gadget Show and its use in several real-life scenarios.
