When I am not up to my ears in netbooks to review, I like to peruse YouTube looking for video of morons hurting themselves in embarrassing ways. I am particularly fond of the videos where someone gets their gonads smashed whilst showing off in one way or another. That's quality entertainment in my book. If you are the sort who likes to film yourself doing extreme sports or generally questionable behavior Tachyon has the camcorder for you.

The thing is called the Tachyon XC Micro and it claims to be the world's smallest helmet camera. The thing has a wide-angle lens and can connect to a helmet, dashboard, or goggles for recording. The camera is water and shock resistant and weighs only 3.7 ounces.

It measures in at 3.8" x 1.4" x 1.8" and records at a resolution of 640 x 480. The pair of AAA batteries that powers the camera is good for four hours of continuous shooting. Video is stored to microSDHC cards up to 32GB in capacity. The little camcorder is available now until the end of the month for $99.99 and will ship mid-December.
