Looxcie, Inc. announced today the Looxcie 2 wearable camcorder that weighs 20 percent less and is almost half the size of the original while maintaining full battery capacity and all video capture and social media sharing features. New attachment accessories provide users with a variety of ways to wear and use Looxcie 2: snugly over the ear, on helmets, caps and more.
Looxcie 2 comes in two configurations: up to 10 hours of video storage and up to 5 hours of video storage, available for $199 and $179 (MSRP) on www.looxcie.com. The companion Looxcie smartphone apps can be downloaded for free from the Android's Marketplace or iPhone's App Store.
Looxcie 2's unique design allows for a hands-free point-of-view experience. When a memorable moment occurs that is worth preserving or sharing, the instant clip button automatically rewinds, captures and saves the moment as a permanent clip, which can be instantly shared to sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. And with the updated LooxcieMoments smartphone companion app, users can now choose between either 320p or 480p video quality. Software and firmware upgrades are compatible with the original Looxcie.
“With Looxcie we gave people a way to capture video and share instantly, ensuring that they wouldn't miss the best part of a shot,” said Looxcie CEO, Romulus Pereira. “Looxcie 2 takes this seamless experience a huge leap forward by giving people the flexibility to wear Looxcie in whatever way is convenient to them so they can catch that killer jump, swing or slam dunk and still share it out over social media in a single click.”
Looxcie 2 utilizes a dual processor system for simultaneous video capture and wireless communication. The Looxcie's video processor software maximizes battery life and optimizes video for viewing, editing and sharing on mobile devices.
