Video Spy Glasses Raise Over 300K on Kickstarter

If you’re like me then you always wanted your own pair of covert spy glasses just like in a James Bond movie. Apparently a lot of people out there do as well because one company was able to raise over three hundred thousand dollars on Kickstarter.com to create glasses that record video from the perspective of the wearer. What would you use “spy glasses” for?
ZionEyez, a Seattle startup recently offered to sell you a pair of their Eyez video recording glasses if you made a $150 donation to their KickStarter fund, and wow, did they get a good response. No wonder considering how awesome the promised specs are for Eyez. With their donation drive coming to an end, ZionEyez has raised $343,415 (more than six times their original goal of $55k) from 2106 donors.

I recently bought a pair of Active-I glasses which do the same thing. 640x480. The sound is not very good but I only paid about $50.
Not sure if I can put a link here but;

You never know when you are going to be accused of a crime. You may be totally innocent, but these days "innocent until proven guilty" does not hold up anymore. Just for this reason alone I might be interested in this.

(Not that this is anything new, there already exist systems to continuously record video from a first person perspective, so I don't quite get why this is such a big deal.)
