Creepy Stalkers Rejoice! Eyez Video Camera Sunglasses are Here

I’m sure this is supposed to be a security-type device, but the first thing that leapt to my mind was creepy stalkers on the beach. Why on Earth would you need a video camera in your sunglasses if you weren’t up to something you shouldn’t be? Maybe it’s just me.

Anyway, how these work…there is a video camera located in the top right of the frame, which is hidden inside the eyelet detail. It records 720p at 30 frames per second and sports a wide angle, fixed focus lens (made by Omnivision, the company that provides the camera for iPhone and iPad). A microphone is hidden in the arm of the glasses, and sound is recorded in mono at MP3 quality. There’s 8GB of flash memory inside the frame, a micro USB charging and data transfer port and the Eyez can also connect to a computer via Bluetooth. It comes with a 350mAh lithium ion battery, which provides enough power for three hours of recording. To turn on the camera, just tap the power sensor on the arm.

It comes with a set of clear lenses as well as the tinted ones, in case your prey goes indoors. You can also snap prescription lenses into the frames, providing you can convince your optometrist to play along with your stalking plans. With the Eyez app, the sunglasses can wirelessly transmit to an iOS or Android device via WiFi 802.11n and stream video to social networking sites. Does anyone else see huge potential for disaster here? I suppose you could wear them for something innocuous like your kid’s football game, but I have to imagine most people buying these would not be shooting video they could share with the family.

These aren’t available yet, but if you pre-order now for winter 2011 delivery, you can save $50.00 off the $199.00 US launch price.
