Pivothead G2CBO1 overview

  • 1Description

Put them on, turn them on, and go on, capturing Full HD 1080p perspective video while getting the full benefit of a pair of shades. Not enough for you? Attach an optional streaming add-on and live stream everything you see -- whether you're travelling, heading home, on a rollercoaster, or wherever. The Pivothead SMART Eyewear, in coal black, combines an HD photo/video camera, touch and swipe panel, LED indication system, sound notifications, and shades into an intelligent, easy-to-use, sleek, new-age device. Moreover, you can swap the included shade lenses out for others available from Pivothead, such as Clear Chameleon and Ruby Gradient. In fact, prescription lenses are also available.

The camera lens is in the center of the shades. The touch control panel is invisible and located by the left temple. It's intuitive and easy to use, and allows you to take a picture, record a video, and initiate live streaming. A row of LED indicators communicates with you and let you know most of everything you need to know, and they can be seen when you have the glasses on. And sound notifications tell you the rest of what you need to know. This audiovisual system will inform you of your status and warn you of issues such as low battery power.

Other than 1080p video, you can capture 720p and 480p resolutions, as well as 8MP hi-res photos as single shots or bursts of 3, 5, 10, or 16 frames. You can also record time-lapses in multiple different extended periods. The camera has a 3.5mm wide angle focal length and 77° field of view, and audio is recorded via a built-in mic. For storage, a microSD card is accepted in a slot where one of the stems of the glasses folds. An 8GB card is included, and up to 32GB cards are supported.

The SMART Eyewear operate on battery power. A small module called the Fuel SMARTMOD is included that connects directly to the end of one of the stems. It provides 40 minutes of recording time and 20 minutes of streaming time, and is rechargeable via a supplied USB cable. The Fuel SMARTMOD weighs next to nothing, about as much as a common coin, and you won't feel one side of the glasses to be heavier than the other. On the contrary, the Fuel SMARTMOD completes the glasses. And you can purchase additional ones and swap one for the other to keep shooting all day.

Live streaming is a major feature of the SMART Eyewear. To enable it you just need to attach a Pivothead Live SMARTMOD, sold separately. Then, whatever you're seeing and recording can be streamed directly to a Pivothead.tv broadcast channel that you can set up. The streaming resolution is 480p at 30 fps. (For an additional fee, Pivothead also offers an unlock service that lets you stream to your own server. This service does not support public destinations such as YouTube Live.) Live streaming is easy -- you simply initiate it on the touch panel and connect to your computer/tablet network over 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi. The Live SMARTMOD has the same exact design as the Fuel SMARTMOD and attaches to the other stem.

Two free iOS/Android apps also accompany the glasses. One is mainly for assigning settings such as white balance and exposure modes, and the other is for managing the optional Live SMARTMOD. All of these things can alternatively also be done in a browser on a regular computer. The apps are available for download at the Apple App Store and on Google Play.

    Pivothead G2CBO1 reviews

    SMART Eyewear Architect Edition (Coal Black) is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I can't in good concience recommend these to most people. I have had both of their Recording Eyewear products and both of them have failed and no longer work. I am a techie and I take care of my things however these Glasses are flawed. Instead of fixing them or working with me they told me I could give them more money and they would fix them. I said no thank you. If you are rich and want to try them and won't miss the money when they break or the program crashes, then go ahead, otherwise save your money.
