This head-cam will survive even if you don't

'Veecam' is made for extreme conditions


It's no secret that Crave is fond of things to put on your head , but many of the items we've come across are fragile in nature. (Tin-foil hats can be so finicky sometimes.) So the survivalist in us appreciates any attempts to create headgear for extreme conditions.

The "Veecam" from U.K.-based Persides fits that bill, a battle-ready digital video camera designed for use in sports or even military applications. How ready, you say? It's waterproof up to 50 meters (164 feet) and can withstand temperatures from minus-4 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit, while being particularly shock- and vibration-resistant because it has no moving parts. It also has a 2.4-inch LCD and a battery that can last for 16 hours, or 8 hours of recording time.

You'll have to pay a hefty price to play international person of intrigue, however--800 pounds, or about $1,600, Engadget says. But if Her Majesty's Secret Service is picking up the tab, you could also get a Bluetooth crash helmet for extreme sensory deprivation.
