Intelligent Optics Video Camera Glasses: The Intelligent Option to a Bike Mounted or Helmet Camera

You may recall last year the BBC featured an article online and on TV regarding cyclists in London combating bad driving with the use of helmet cameras. Cyclist Ben from London famously portrayed one particular event where a van driver caused him to have an accident and then proceeded to jump out the van to confront him and verbally abuse him.

Cyclists use Helmet Cameras to capture bad driving during their daily commute.

Luckily Mr Porter was wearing a helmet camera and he captured the incident on film, allowing the police to secure a conviction against the van driver. There are around 17,000 injuries every year and 2009 saw 104 deaths of cyclists on the roads, using a camera to capture footage of bad drivers is a good way of ensuring that drivers take notice of cyclists and perhaps give them a little bit more respect and be more considerate on the roads.

Who knows you could end up in court or appearing on TV if you aren’t!

A different type of helmet camera

Helmet cameras are a bulky device which attaches to your helmet via straps, or to a chest harness or handlebar rig. Although functional it does mean additional weight and/or an attachment to your body or bike. Almost all cyclists wear glasses, so with the development of digital camera technology, Intelligent Optics have developed the iO Classic Series Video Camera Glasses.

These stylish sunglasses feature a high quality camera in the nose bridge of the sunglasses, allowing you to record footage of whatever you happen to be looking at. Ideal for creating a video record of a cycling trip, downhill run, red route at a trail centre, or for a video diary of your city commute. As the camera is incorporated in the sunglasses there is no need for an additional bolt on helmet cam or chest rig.
