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.
