Helmet Camcorder for Archos media players

Archos Helmet Camcorder

Archos today said it has developed a unique attachment to extend the usefulness of its newest x04 media players. The newly-added Helmet Camcorder plugs into any Archos 404, 504, or 604 media player and records video in 640x480 MPEG-4 video directly to a given player's internal hard drive, allowing the wearer to create hour-long clips from the resulting footage. The combination of an included headband and a wired remote make it ideal for sports or other circumstances where conventional cameras would be too dangerous, Archos writes. A high-sensitivity CCD lets the camera record even in near-total darkness; slow-motion capture as precise as 1/8th time is possible for preserving highlights. Video is transferrable to any computer through USB. Available this month, the Helmet Camcorder sells for $150.
