What is it? This wear­able 4K cam­era gives a great own-eye per­spec­tive on what­ever it is you’re do­ing. Want to cap­ture the mo­ment as you make a para­chute jump, ab­seil down a cliff face or ride a roller coaster? With the A500, you record ex­actly what you see. The cam­era unit sits on the side of your head, at eye level, while the ‘body’ of the cam­era can be strapped to your arm. When’s it due? Snap one up now. Why are we ex­cited? 4K video and wear­able tech are this year’s big things, and this dinky de­vice com­bines them both. It could prove a real trump card to ex­treme sports fans, or any­one who wants a per­ma­nent me­mento of a once-in-a-life­time ex­pe­ri­ence. Watch Brazil­ian foot­baller and star of the World Cup, Ney­mar Jr, put it through its paces at­vo5B92GgI.
