    The VIEVU PVR-PRO is a WEARABLE video recording device for use by consumers and professionals wishing to capture their daily events or protect themselves from liability. The design enables the camera to be attached to the user so that their perspective is captured during their routine daily events. The video files are downloaded to a PC via simple drag-and-drop. Once transferred, the files can be edited or uploaded to your favorite video sharing site. The camera operates via an on/off switch which also serves as a lens cover. The VIEVU PVR-PRO can record and store approximately 4 hours of video and audio in SVGA quality format.

    Gee and only $499.95 for the -PRO and $699.95 for the -LE!...

    I think I'll stick with sub-$50 audio recorders that record more than just 4 hours.

    Definitely a neat development, though.

    Maybe not viable yet, but it is something to look forward too in the future... Electronics move fast enough, probably could get one for sub 200 in a year or less.

    It might, and my guess is that it does. The Xvid codecs have not been released in binary yet, probably why they don't list linux as required, but most players for linux have built in support for Xvid, which is actually decoded with Mpeg4, under FFmpeg.
