Looxcie HD

Live stream your life in HD to your Facebook friends with the Looxcie HD (hands-on)

BARCELONA, Spain--If you live an extraordinarily fascinating life and believe that everyone should be able to witness every glorious second of it as it happens, the Looxcie HD may well be the gadget for you. It's a video camera that's small enough to attach anywhere on your person that, thanks to its built in Wi-Fi, allows you to live stream everything to your Facebook wall.

Like the ever-popular GoPro Hero range of video cameras, the Looxcie HD is designed to be as small and inconspicuous as possible. It's small enough to sit comfortably in the palm of your hand and light enough not to be awkward when strapped to your helmet, baseball cap, or bike handlebars.

It connects to your iPhone or Android phone using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, using your mobile data to stream the video. You'll need to grab the free Looxcie app from whichever app store you use, which you'll then be able to connect to Facebook. Interestingly, Facebook doesn't natively allow for live-streaming, but Looxcie explained it's performed some kind of wizardry -- which, it assures me, is totally allowed -- to get the streams to play.
