One of the most telling things that Drew Martin learned while living in New York and traveling the world is that life’s best moments don’t wait for you to grab a camera to capture them.
Being able to catch these spontaneous, memorable moments with a small, hands-free video camera was something that Martin wanted to bring to the mainstream public. With his new MeCam wearable video camera, people everywhere can now capture life as they enjoy it.
Pinned to the users’ shirt or worn as a necklace, MeCam catches every instant from a first-person point of view, recording each moment the way users see it. Users can easily upload the video to their computer via USB and can share their videos using their various social media outlets.
Martin, who founded MeCam LLC in late 2012, used his knowledge from a brief foray into the spy camera industry to bring that advanced technology to the mainstream. MeCams allow for that technology to be used in a fun and useful way without the negative connotations that come with spy wear.
“Life moves fast, and the best moments are usually the unexpected,” said Martin. “With a MeCam, users can now have a hands-free camera capable of recording their life on the go.”
The wearable video camera is less than two inches in diameter and weighs less than two ounces. It records video in 720p high-definition resolution at 30 frames per second and is equipped with a Lithium-ion battery for 80 minutes of continuous run time and up to four hours of video storage on a micro SD card.
MeCams also utilize LED infrared (IR) lighting to operate effectively in low light conditions and captures audio within a 10 foot radius. It can also take 5 megapixel still photos.
Intended for fun and recognizable use, MeCams are available in a variety of colors and memory options. The hands-free camera is easy to operate for children and adults alike, and can be used for an endless array of applications.
Martin says that MeCam will continue to come out with new, more advanced products such as devices with Bluetooth capability that will sync to a smart phone app. He is also working on coming out with an easy to use video editing software to accompany MeCams, so that its users can make their own movies of their lives.
MeCam’s are available online at www.MeCam.me as well as other online retailers, starting at $49.99.
