Pairasight Glasses Stream Video From Your Perspective
The video camera would stream exactly what you see.
Ever have one of those situations when you were calling a friend or significant other from vacation and telling them, "Boy, I wish you could see this."? Pairasight has an idea for that.
The company has announced a new prototype point-of-view (POV) camera that fits into the company's eyewear and streams 1080p HD video to the Internet for sharing in real time. (It's similar to the camera feature Google is promising with it's Project Glass.)
Utilizing a piece of Pairasight-enabled eyewear users can look around at their surroundings, press the stream button on the headset, and share their experiences instantly with another user through the company's website. The eyewear also features two speakers and mics, so you can actually communicate with the user while looking around.
The headset was first demonstrated at the TechCrunch stage during CES 2013, with founder and CEO Chris Salow, utilizing built-in cameras, microphones and speakers to simulate one person sharing an experience with another, as if they were right there. Salow also stated that the headset could be used for work-related purposes, including in the entertainment, medical and military fields.
Pairasight is still looking to fine tune the experience in different ways to enhance the experience, with 3D video recreation and augmented reality.
