PogoTec has announced the invention of PogoCam, the world's smallest wearable camera that attaches to fashionable eyewear. Unlike that of Snap Spectacles which has its camera integrated into one style of eyewear, PogoCam, is easily attachable and detachable to a wide variety of frame styles.
PogoCam , which will be launched in March 2017, utilizes a proprietary new electronic architecture that allows the highest level of miniaturization with lower power requirements than competitive cameras for the same level of high image resolution, memory capacity and performance.
The camera’s extremely small size allows it to be worn without distracting from the fashion look of eyewear. Weighing less than two dimes and measuring only 10.9 x 12.5 x 42.8 millimetres, PogoCam attaches magnetically to eyewear having a proprietary track called PogoTrack. PogoCam allows a user to capture a number of images taken by a typical user during the course of a day.
It comes equipped with a five megapixel sensor providing quality photos or video comparable to a smartphone. PogoCam is capable of capturing in excess of what a typical user would take per day. It can capture and store 100 still photographs or up to two minutes of 720p HD video at 30 frames/second with full audio (12 10-second clips) before having to be downloaded and charged.
The camera is activated by pressing a single button and images are uploaded to a mobile device. PogoCam's camera function is focus free with auto- white balance making it easy for the user to capture high quality images and video. Depending upon the accessory case, the images can be downloaded with a wired connection or with Bluetooth to a smartphone. The camera is resistant to water and perspiration and recharges in approximately 30 minutes.
