Let the countdown continue… It’s the gift-giving season, and I’m here to give some gadget options for those on your gift list (even yourself). This series will last through the holidays.

Day 10: Shades with a Unique View

Whether racing down the slopes or burning rubber on the track, everybody loves sharing video of the action. That used to require carrying a bulky camcorder around, then came better mobile video tech that allowed a small camera to be mounted. But even that’s oldschool now that Pivothead Eyewear is here.

Combining sleek sunglasses with a built-in HD video camera, the shades gi ve a perfect first-person perspective, with hands-free video and audio.

The most advanced imaging device for its size, the Pivothead comes in four models and 17 hip to chic styles. It’s also available for users with prescription lenses. With the optional Air Pivothead WiFi Drive, users can also wirelessly upload, download and stream vidoes, photos and music.
