Eyewear with an integrated docking, pivoting video camera


Some of life's best moments happen when we least expected it. Would anyone appreciate easier access to a camera while biking, fishing, golfing, rock climbing, playing with the kids, or doing something else fun that requires both hands? Integrating a tiny 1080p camera into a small pivoting pod creates a lightweight, instantly accessible, wearable recording device. This FaceShot 1.0 MVP is the platform technology demonstrator. All elements of the design are analyzed for further miniaturization and wireless communication integration. What we developed so far:



  • The camera turns on automatically when it's pivoted forward.

  • The camera turns off automatically when it's docked with the arm of the glasses.

  • The FaceShot has only one button. It changes the camera resolution from 1080p 30fps to 720p 60fps.

  • The camera pivots to record above, below, and directly in the POV.

  • 120 degree field of view camera.

  • Video records to a removable microSD card, up to 32GB.

  • Charges via micro-USB.

  • At least 1.5 hours of recording per charge.

  • Microphone.

  • Water resistant.



  • No need to rig or carry a camera.

  • No buttons to press. When the camera is forward it's on and when it's docked it's off.

  • Only record the moments you want and free up time usually spent editing.

  • The camera pivots to record above and below the POV without the need to purchase additional accessories.

  • No worrying about invasion of privacy concerns. Those in the vicinity can see the small camera pod in the forward position when it's recording.   

  • The FaceShot is the wearable camera that is there when it's needed, gone when it's not.
