A Camera on Your Glasses Without Sacrificing Style – Mountain Eye Care.

Wearable technology has come a long way in our generation with fitness tracking devices, smart watches, and the Oculus Rift gaming devices and products alike. As all of these devices have their place in our lives, they may fail to be a crucial and essential part of our everyday living. Prescription eyeglasses are an important piece of wearable technology and for some people, are an essential part of their everyday lives. Mountain Eye Care knows this, and we are always looking for new advancements in technology for eyewear. Wouldn’t it be cool if you could somehow combine a normal pair of prescription eyeglasses or sunglasses with other technology like a camera, and have them fit together seamlessly? Well, we may have come across a company who is attempting this feat in wearable technology, and we would like to share it with our valued customers.

A company called PogoTec is working on a prototype of a tiny camera called a PogoCam that can be attached to almost any kind of eyeglasses or sunglasses. This little 5MP camera will be able to take up to 100 still photos, 2 minutes of continuous 720p HD video with audio, or 12 ten-second video clips. The camera can be attached and detached from any kind of glasses, and it is said to weigh less than a dime measuring 10.9 x 12.5 x 42.8 millimeters. The fashion-conscious will not have to sacrifice their style with this little camera.

The Possibilities of the PogoCam:

With how simple this little camera is to operate by touching a little button on the side, the possibilities of use for this device are endless. However, we’ve thought of a few possible uses for it where it could be beneficial:

Academics: Since the device is able to capture POV style footage, the PogoCam could be great for a student making study notes.

Documentation: The PogoCam could be used as a way for some occupations to make documented notes during an experiment or a surgery perhaps.

Fitness and Sports: This device could be beneficial to an athlete while they train or workout so they can see what they or their opponents are doing.

Safety Eyewear:  PogoCam can be used on a construction or inspection job site to record proper practises, do inspections, and make repairs etc.

Public Safety: This camera would be perfect for police officers to record routine traffic stops, and other situations that arise.

The videos and photos you shoot with the PogoCam can be transferred to the app on your mobile device via bluetooth or with a wired connection, and it can easily be removed from your eyewear if you are in a situation that calls for no cameras. This device is groundbreaking for wearable technology, and Mountain Eye Care wants our customers to know what is coming in the world of wearable tech.
