Point-of-View Video Glasses

On this week's show, writer and Spark contributor, Cathi Bond brought us the story of Pivothead "video recording eyewear": a camera nested in a pair of eyeglasses that can capture high definition, point of view video. Cathi sees it as an example of our growing trend towards capturing and sharing video, and of a possible future where people become entertainment and communication 'hubs'. But how well do these glasses perform, anyway, and what do they look like? I took a working prototype of the Pivothead glasses out for a spin around the Spark office, shooting video and recording narration using the Pivothead's audio recording capability. What do you think? What likely uses will we see for point of view video down the road?
