Shared by @RikCordero via Twitter, peep out the new Pivothead HD Recording Eyewear that allows you to capture POV video without having a mass hanging from the side of your head. Quality looks pretty good for wearable glasses, and settings can be changed via iOS (iPhone). According to an Amazon listing (seen here), the price will run you about $339 dollars for a pair of the Durango Smokes.

Pivothead wearable POV...coming to a porn site near you soon.
This technology would be GREAT if it would yield a wearable monitor! As it is now, when using my jib boom, I put my monitor on a Cowboy Studio shoulder rig. My HDMI cable attaches to my 5DII(with Small HD cable lock) mounted on a fluid head on the boom. One hand is free to manipulate the fluid head / boom and the other to work an 18" FF whip. It's a fine setup.
Pivothead's HD image quality is remarkably bad.
Not 1080p though but here are some.
I think they had the chinese versions for awhile..I remember seeing the 720p shades about 2 years ago..but not 1080p. I am sure you can find them in 1080p now.
the quality of the footage doesnt exactly look inspiring
Kind of a cool idea, but watching the video I do not get the idea I am seeing their view or angle. Watched a couple other videos and I feel like the camera angle points down and I lose peripheral vision. To bad it doesn't have a wider angle.
I wonder what the field of view is. Wider the better.
POV eh? looks like more amateur online footage. =)
Strip Club...... yeah might have to get these
