Active-iAntuan Goodwin takes a first look at the Active-i from CES 2011.
What's going on, everybody? This is Antuan Goodwin with CNET.com on the floor at CES 2011. I'm wearing these shades not because I think I'm cool, I'm actually demonstrating a product. This is called the Active-i and they're actually a pair of sunglasses that have a built-in camcorder right here in between my eyes. It basically records anything that I see to a small micro SD card that's actually hidden in one of the arms of the glasses. I've also got like a little LCD viewfinder here that I can use to view what I'm viewing. Seems kind of redundant but it's there. I can also remove it if I needed to to remove the distraction. Battery life on this guy is gonna be about 2 hours without the viewfinder. Using that viewfinder, of course, is gonna impact the battery life. It's actually a pretty interesting product. We've got a couple of buttons up here for play, pause, record. I can also play back the video that I've record to the SD card out of the viewfinder right here. Now, it's not an HD video camera by any stretch. You're only gonna get 640 X 480 so that's pretty low resolution, VGA-type video but at least you've got something. Alright, everybody, this has been Antuan Goodwin on the floor at CES 2011 taking a CNET first look at the Active-i video recording sunglasses.
