Looxcie introduced its answer to the GoPro two years ago, but now the company has released its latest wearable camera and this one features full HD 1080p recording capabilities along with built-in Wi-Fi. It also offers streaming from the camera to Facebook via live streaming through the Looxcie App for iOS or Android.
Live mobile streaming is available up to 480p resolution, and the camera can reportedly adapt to match output capabilities of the mobile network – offering 240p at 15 frames per second on 3G, or 320p at 15fps on 4G or Wi-Fi. While recording the resolution can see a marked increase in resolution, including up to 1080p (30fps), and recordings can be saved as MPEG 4 files.
The Looxie HD ($279.99 MSRP) offers a low-light CMOS camera sensor with a 75 degree field of view, with auto light correction for indoor or outdoor use, and can run for two hours from the 1200mAH Li-Po rechargeable battery.
