The first year I went to CES years ago, I saw a geek running around the halls wearing a backpack stuffed with batteries and recording gear all to support the camera mounted to a hat he wore so he could post video of him actually moving around the show floor. I saw the dude leaning against things resting a lot, the rig had to weigh 30 pounds or so. Today you can do the same thing with the wearable Looxcie camcorder that supports Bluetooth.
This week Looxcie has announced that its camera is now supporting the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4G smartphones. The only caveat to supporting the camcorder on the Apple device is that you have to be running iOS 4.2 or higher. There is a Looxcie device on Amazon for sale now that is Made for iPhone certified.
The Looxcie iPhone app can be downloaded on the app store. Perhaps the best news is that the new model supports both the iPhone and Android devices in one model. There was some confusion before with older version of the cameras that only supported Android or the iPhone, not both. Early adopters won't like that their version only supports one platform.
