We have seen Looxcie roll out their fair share of wearable cameras in the past, and here we are with their latest addition, the Looxcie HD video cam which is touted to deliver full 1080p recording as well as integrated Wi-Fi connectivity, letting you share a live video stream with family and friends in full HD quality, and in real time, too. Touted to be the first wearable cam in the market which delivers direct-to-Facebook live streaming, the Looxcie HD is said to enable users to kic off their own personal broadcasting network, where you can choose to start a public broadcast for the curious, or if you’re more private, begin a private stream where only invited friends can participate.
Once the broadcast is over, the recorded video will be saved automatically in the cloud, where you can then share it on Facebook later on via the Looxcie App for Facebook. In the event where users are not streaming, Looxcie’s special Instant Clip button allows folks to capture “instant replay” clips of what happened. The Looxcie HD hooks up wirelessly to smartphones or tablets that run on iOS (5.0 or higher) or Android (2.3.3 or higher), letting you stream a broadcast or share video clips from just about anywhere you are with a decent connection.
Other features include a new water-resistant design, a low-light camera sensor, and removable and rechargeable battery. You can place a pre-order for the Looxcie HD from today onwards, where depending on the configuration, it will retail from $279.99 to $349.99. [Press Release]
