SPRINGVILLE, Alabama -- Check out these cool new sunglasses that allow simple video and still photo capture with a tiny camera built into the nose bridge. The video camera shoots 1080 30 fps, 720 60 and 30 fps video and the still camera shoots 8 megapixel still photos. Memory capacity is 8 GB on board.
The glasses are very comfortable and stay in place. The lens are glass and can be worn as safety and shooting glasses. Several different interchangeable lenses come with the kit. Photo gray, mirror blue, dark gray and clear came with the kit I received. Once you learn the correct way to change the lenses out, it's fairly easy.
Several years ago, when Chris Cox was running his own manufacturing business in Asia, a client asked him to mount a video camera on a rifle.

"Then we said, 'Wait a minute, why would you want this? It's because you want your true point of view while using the rifle.'"
That desire to capture a first-person perspective eventually led Mr Cox to create a line of sunglasses, known as Pivothead.
