ContourHD Films Your Extreme Escapades In HD

The ContourHD claims to be, quite simply, the world's first wearable HD camcorder.

At just 113 grams, the anodised aluminium ContourHD can snap on your ski goggles, yet it still shoots HD video (1280x720) at 30fps, or SD at 60fps. Video is stored to swappable MicroSD cards up to 16GB, meaning that up to 8 hours of HD and 16 hours of SD can be captured on a single card.

But while we can't speak to the video quality, the wide, 135-degree lens with rotation and laser alignment sounds great for capturing your stupidity from a first-person perspective (even if it's a smaller viewing angle than we see in the Go Pro Hero). Look for the CountourHD at $US300 this May. [vholdr]
