Me Cam Lets You Wear Your Camera

Smartphones are almost always with us so their cameras are often used. But there are situations when having a hands free camera is preferable. The Me Cam is a fun wearable mini -camera which you can either pin onto your clothing or wear as a necklace.

This inexpensive ($49) novelty camera is a round disc just under 2 inches in diameter and can record 72P HD video and images in low light conditions. It’s meant for point of view recording and the results are informal due to the inability to aim the camera precisely and the motion of the wearer. Good fun though for the next family reunion or party.

"Hugo was a model of self-restraint in many aspects of life. In fact, he restrained himself from piano practice every day. Surely no one would notice if He took one small bite of his sister's birthday cake. Just one tiny bite!"
