jst3p: t3knomanser: jst3p: Out on a bike ride for example or taking video of skiing with my kids without having to mount something to my helmet

But that's not really what it's for- it's a display that  also records video. To me, the problem is the display (I'm not sold on the idea of a head-mounted camera, either- I'd rather have a more stable platform).

First of all who are you to tell me what I buy it  for? But for biking I wasn't thinking video. I would love this:
