Wearable camera technology might seem like a gimmick, especially after the failure of Google Glass. But, every day, we hear of new wearable camera devices being released. So, while some may be gimmicks, it looks like the ideas a whole is here to stay. The one issue that current cameras have had, though, is that they’re kind of power hungry.
Researchers at the University of Washington have now developed a new HD streaming camera that soon may require no batteries at all. The jobs of those power hungry components have been shifted out of the camera and into the receiving device, like a smartphone or tablet. This new HD streaming system requires 1/1,000th to 1/10,000th the power of current streaming technology, which it just plucks out of the air.
