    Putting my security-geek hat to one side for a moment, I wonder about the likelihood of devices like these actually capturing what the user intends – remembering seeing various pieces of footage from body-worn covert surveillance cameras and mics which fail to capture what the wearer intended. Is the lens a wide-angle / fishbowl one, to maximise the likelihood of the camera pointing in a reasonable direction (modulo head movements on the part of the wearer)? For spectacle wearers, wouldn’t it be rather better to build a camera such as this into a frame, so that head movements are factored into what’s photographed? Is it waterproof?

    Agreed, that is a good point actually. Especially as there is no sound… at least not yet, thank god!

    I am a bit torn about this, at best. The privacy implications – not mine but the people I encounter wearing the camera – and the general move towards a panopticon style pressure, even if it’s not institutions but individual.
