Broadcasting holiday gatherings to friends & family. Looxcie Live.

Boot Camp feature for Friday, November 18, 2011

     Broadcasting holiday gatherings to friends and family members around the world.  I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Looxcie is a company that makes a wearable camera that doubles as a Bluetooth headset.   It can be set to record all the time, and you simply press a button to mark events you want to save.   Now, CEO and founder Rom Pereira says, Looxcie is adding the capability to broadcast live….selectively…

“Most of the services out there are really designed with no controls and we’re saying there’s a use case that if I’m doing things that are personal to me.  Family events, there’s a group of people I want to share with.  So in our service, you dynamically form the group of people you want to watch your broadcast depending on the nature of the event.  It can be as little as one person or as many as everybody in your friends list.”

You need an iOS or Android smartphone.   Looxcie devices sell for about a hundred fifty dollars.  There’s more info at Looxcie.com.    You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
