V.I.O. POV.1 Helmet Cam Designed for Extreme Sports

I’m not sure if the resulting videos would be best suited for submission to America’s Funniest Home Videos or to the next Jackass movie, but having a camera mounted on your helmet as you attempt to jump the Grand Canyon is pretty damn awesome.

The POV.1 from V.I.O. is a fully self-contained unit that is “built to capture hands-free video from your point-of-view.” On one end, you have the barrel of the camera itself that you can mount onto your helmet. A wire runs to the other end of the equation where you find a recorder/converter.

The cam takes in DivX/MPEG4 movies at 720×480 pixels (30fps). Memory comes by way of SD cards with a 2GB card giving you enough room for 80 minutes of nuttiness. Thankfully, the whole thing has been built to sustain some rather massive abuse, being water and shock-resistant up to 1 meter and surviving temperatures from -40 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit.

Available for pre-order for $849.95.
