Video Camera Glasses

if you're doing maker stuff in your shop (or just instructional stuff in general) you're probably less concerned about that and more concerned about whatever widget you're (no pun intended) focusing on
Exactly. Which is why the sunglass thing is a disqualifier.

That's why I suggested your phone.

Video & Audio recording can be a black hole for both time and money when you really start getting into it! :eek:

That's a form factor issue. I want to be hands free and working very naturally. And not have a big slab duct-taped onto my forehead. That's why I (vainly) hoped that someone made glasses with a camera at least as good as my phone's.

My other use is to make POV lesson videos for my lab students to keep them from blowing themselves up when doing vacuum line work. :D These look like a good bet for that, but for the electronics bench, the parallax may be too much.
The camera hardware is one thing, but it doesn't work without chips and software. What makes GoPro, iPhones, Pixels, etc as good as they are is the software (and the hardware to run the software, which takes space). I would be skeptical towards video quality from some of those glasses. Just my intuition.

@SIY I'm just going to throw this out there as maybe it will be useful.

One of the channels I follow on YT is "Dronebot Workshop" (~600k subs). Pretty much all of his videos are educational benchwork, and I believe most of his footage is shot with a camera arm/boom, as they allow you get good overhead shots, while staying out of your way.

I have this style mounted to the wall in my workshop., It lets me put the cameras in places that wouldn't be possible any other way.

This is a $25 Tv wall mount that I repurposed for camera use in the shop.
