This third eye wearable camera isn't a joke

Google Glass was a nice idea, executed awfully. It turned out not many people wanted to wear a camera on the side of their head.

They want it slap bang in the middle of their forehead. At least, that's what 3RDiTEK think. 

Lacking the projector tech of Google's retired wearable, the 3RDi is - in brutal simplicity - a camera attached to a headband. Which, for our money, makes the wearer look a bit like Wonder Woman.

With the 3RDI you can capture your life instantly and easily while enjoying the present moment

Instantly! So what activities does 3RDiTech envision you using its wearable camera for? 

Terrifying your newborn infant!

Playing basketball by yourself!

Hiking! While interacting with people using a normal camera

Attending generic sports events!

Ensuring cops don't shoot you!

The camera is activated by either sliding your finger forwards on either side of the band to start recording a short video, or backwards to capture a single image. Try remembering the difference between those subtle actions when you're midway through a basketball move/BMX trick/precious moment with your newborn child.

The 3RDi can either connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth, or store images and videos with an onboard microSD card. And in case you wanted to look even more of a wally, there's also a flash. 

Should the 3RDi actually strike you as a good idea, you can flag your interest on Indiegogo - with £126 nabbing you a headset. Assuming, that is, they make it to their ambitious funding goal of $250,000 (£162,534).

And no, their isn't a selfie model. Yet.
