Posted in Camcorders,Cameras by Shane McGlaun on December 31st, 2009

I have always wanted to learn to scuba dive. The chances of me ever getting my wife under water after seeing that flick Open Water is slim to none though. The best I can hope for is that someone I know goes diving and uses a mask like the Liquid Image Model 312 mask.

The mask has a video camera built in that records at 30 fps in 720 x 480 resolution. The camera can also shoot 5MP still images and operates down to a depth of 65 feet. The buttons are large and designed to be used with gloves.

Lego Polaroid Camera

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on December 30th, 2009

It’s no secret that we love Lego around here. We also have a special place in our hearts for the Polaroid camera. So it goes without saying that we have fallen in love with this adorable mashup.

Sadly, this Lego Polaroid 1000 instant camera doesn’t actually work. If it did it would sell like crazy. Maybe Polaroid and Lego can team up and offer us a working model, but we won’t hold our breath.

San Jose Police will soon record all interaction with civilians

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2009

We’ve all heard and seen the stories of police brutality. They sure are taser-happy these days. Well, officers in San Jose, CA are being outfitted with head-mounted cameras. They hope this will help stop such situations. The kit includes a camera, a control piece and a computer for their belt. Every time an officer interacts with a civilian, they are supposed to activate the AXON camera.

Afterward, the officer can put the camera on a “buffer” mode that records limited video, or turn it off. At the end of a shift, the video is downloaded to a central server. The problem here is that the officer can turn it off at all. Obviously if you are going to give somebody a beatdown, why would you turn it on.

Fleximus camera for those hard to reach places

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on December 22nd, 2009

Designer Art Lebedev apparently likes to take pictures of things that are not easily accessible. And so his new design concept called Fleximus, was born.

There’s a lens on one end and a compact peephole viewfinder on the other. Need a larger peephole? Just snap on Art’s larger viewscreen to give you a better look at things. We suppose it’s a good spy cam if you don’t need to be very stealthy. Maybe you can look through keyholes, from around a corner.
