Ubiquiti Networks, a company specializing in networking products, has launched FrontRow, its take on wearable cameras. FrontRow is a large medallion weighing 55 grammes, with an 8-megapixel camera on one side (with optical stabilizer), a 5-megapixel one on the other, a round 2-inch touchscreen (640 x 572px), 32GB of storage, a microphone and a USB-C port. When connected to a Wi-Fi network, FrontRow streams images directly on social networks like Facebook, YouTube or Twitter, bypassing the phone. Autonomy is said to be two hours in video mode and 12 hours in timelapse mode. The camera can be worn around the neck or clipped to clothing. Available for US$400 (CA$505), in black or pink.
⇨ Circuit Breaker, “FrontRow is another high-end take on the idea of a wearable camera.”
