    I would use this little gadget to record all of the brilliant ideas that show up in my mind when I least expect them and have nothing to write them on. Like last night I had a brilliant idea for a new book/movie script but I couldn’t write it down because I didn’t have a pen… it would never leave my side, and I would call it George.

    I can totally see using this for big family get-togethers (Thanks Giving, Christmas, Easter, etc).

    For work I think it’d be fun to use on Social Engineering projects due to it’s wonderful compact form factor.

    As a business owner of small process serving company, I plan to revolutionist the use of this wearable camera. Never been used in the market, I plan to use the camera to video tape the defendants / respondents who I serve the papers on. Never again, will any defendants / respondents denying ever being served by the process server, since he or she is on video. Any actions by the defendants / responded will be recorded, therefore eliminating the he said she said excuses. thank you.

    I would use this compact cutie to record special holidays and events with my family. In addition, I would probably follow my friends around like some crazy dame in an attempt to grab some “You Tube” video. Actually, the possibilites are endless with this picture-preserving piece of technology. Hmmmm. It may be just the thing to “play back” touchy conversations with the inlaws. Oh yeah.
