Review: Looxcie 3 social media video recorder

updated 03:11 pm EST, Fri January 17, 2014

Diminutive gadget intended to stream video through user's smartphone

When someone thinks of going out for a night on the town, there's nearly always a camera handy to record the events of the evening. In an age where we share our social experiences on the web as freely as air is breathed, cell phones act as a catch-all for this activity, snapping photos or video and sharing them on services like Facebook, Twitter, or Snapchat. But what about those occasions where an event needs to be shared as it happens? The Looxcie 3, a small video recorder, streams video through a smartphone and posts the feed straight to Facebook. As much as we like to share with the world, does the Looxcie fit into the online social landscape, or is it trouble waiting to happen? Check our review to find out.

    I want to mount one of these on my doggie!
    Instant "What the heck is my pet doing?"
    But yeah. I can see how this would be problematic in wide spread general use.
