When we first saw this wrist camera, we thought it was a joke. Check out the picture on the far right: It looks as if we could have done just as well with any waterproof point-and-shoot and some Velcro.
Granted, Discovery's wrist cam does have some interesting features, such as the ability to shoot 32 10-second video clips as well as take photos. But we just can't get past the design.
The product literature says this "ultra-light" camera weighs "less than 12 ounces"--which means that, by today's standards, it isn't exactly a featherweight. Also, it "lays flat on the wrist and flips up to take the picture." (Doesn't all this seem decidedly low-tech?)
The camera itself looks like and old Kodak Instamatic from the '60s. All it needs is one of those rotating flash cubes on top.
