Google building wearable cameras with Helpouts support

Google is reportedly working on a new wearable camera that is designed to support Helpouts, the company's latest service that allows users to share "help" tutorials over video. Although the specifications of the new device were not detailed, it was confirmed by a company called Ambarella.

For those who don't know, Ambarella manufactures processors for professional-grade video cameras. Via press release, Ambarella writes that it is "exploring" an idea with Google to launch wearable cameras that have Helpouts support. It also promised to demo a prototype at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next year.

It may sound like Google Glass, but Ambarella says that it will use its A7LW camera chip on the device to record stable videos even when moving. "It provides excellent image quality in low light conditions, while its low power operation enables long battery life," Ambarella said.

Meanwhile, Udi Manber,  Google's Vice President of Engineering, said that the gadget will simplify interaction, allowing the other person to see what you are seeing.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
