I just read an article about the Looxcie (http://looxcie.com/device). Has anyone used it before? Wouldn't it be cool if members wore them on investigations? Then when something is experienced, each person's video can be downloaded and compared. It can work with a smartphone to gather sound to go with the images.
It's specifications don't mention night vision, so perhaps it's only good for day investigations. It would be cool if it could do infra-red filming, which would work at night.

Just my 2 cents...

However I wonder how much it impairs your hearing in the ear it is attached to? Even if it picks up the sound hearing direction / depth requires both ears to obtain proper perception. I would be more in favor if it used a headband or such that allowed one to wear it above e the forehead.
Also, rather than a phone app, how about a portable recorder, even if one wore it as a separate item on the belt? That would eliminate the distraction of having to have a phone turned on while investigating.
In summary, while I can see certain advantages I probably would not buy one for investigating.
