Time Waits For No One … Except Roader’s Time Machine Camera

Wearable video cam lets users ‘record the past’

Cue the Marty McFly jokes.

Roader has introduced a wearable video recorder it’s dubbed the Time Machine Camera.

When paired with the accompanying iOS or Android app, the  Time Machine Camera continuously captures footage and employs a buffering technology that will record the most recent five to 10 seconds when the user presses a button.

It features built-in Bluetooth that can transmit the square-shaped videos to a smartphone for easy social sharing. Other specs include 16GB of internal storage; ability to record 640 by 640p at 30 fps (Bluetooth transmission) or 1088 by 1088p at 30 fps (Wi-Fi transmission); built-in mic and speaker; and a six-hour battery life.
