It's a camera that shoots in AVI... I'm going to guess that it does work.

Don't quote me on that though.

I love this product, but have no real use for it. Doesn't mean i'm not considering buying it, however . . .

I've looked around for the answer to that question. I think this is the same camera. It says it's OS X compatible. My guess is yes. However, I haven't been able to find any reviews.

I kinda just wanna buy these so i can constantly record everything on short adventures. I got a feeling this is a lot of how those "DO YOU CARY A CAMERA ON YOU AT ALL TIMES" videos are made..

If susanrm is correct, the answer is yes. And that link also answers my question: 72-degree field of view (the gopro is 170 degrees for comparison)

Older models say yes, so I don't see why not. They may even ship with headphones.

This is a nifty product, but I can't justify the cost right now.

This looks like a cool gadget, however I'm saddened that there is not an accompanying "Woot Actual Field Test". Tempting to purchase anyhow.

Does anyone know if it records audio? I'm guessing, if it does, that this model may not record stereo??

It says that it will do 1+ hours with the included 4Gig and will take a 32Gig card....how long is the battery life?

Apparent similar model with more storage (8GB vs. 4GB) and lower price found here. Found it even lower on a few other sites.

Anyone able to find a link to video actually shot on one of these under various conditions?

I can't find a video on YouTube made with this thing... or any video about it at all...

Edit: I would like to know the data-rate of the video, that would give us a hint to the quality of it. And also, which codec the AVI video uses.

I own these glasses and they work fairly well as long as there is plenty of light. When indoors the video is very grainy. The recording uses mjpeg compression with .avi output file format. Working the button is difficult and there is no way of knowing if you actually hit the button correctly without removing the glasses and looking at the small led inside the arm of the frame. It does not capture still shots at all. The usb interface is standard mini usb. The little rubber cover over the usb port is annoying and never can be seated correctly. I just removed it all together. The framerate seems ok but move your head quickly and it get's a bit jerky. The polarization on the glasses are good and work well when fishing to remove glare from the water surface. Overall I'm pretty happy with them. Here are the details.

This is the closest I could find by googling
"Mega Sight 3" which someone else linked to an Amazon above.

At first I thought these would be great for a heavy sports fan, but then I started thinking about someone wearing these glasses everywhere. I know technology is not to blame, but it is getting easy for everyone to become an amateur spy (or stalker).

I guess I should start looking for people wearing sunglasses at night.--like the Blues Brothers. :-)

Built in 8gb flash, doesn't appear to have a microSD slot to add memory.

So I'm guessing that they are waterproof? If not why would they have a rubber cover on the USB port, anyone?

They actually work pretty good on roller coasters, especially on sunny days.

They are not good for anything involving water. They will record until they get wet in the wrong spot and then they are done for.

This is exactly what my 14 yo has been asking for! He wants to see the terror in my face as he plays back himself ski racing. Looks like I'm getting more gray hair for Christmas.
