This camera aims to offer a more discreet way to film everyday situations. Streamcam's creator wanted to offer wearers accountability in a variety of encounters.
For example, filming police interactions has become increasingly important for people in marginalized communities. It can be a way for citizens to be proactive and can hold officers accountable — even if a dashcam is rolling or if an officer is wearing a body camera.
Cyclists concerned about accidents or facing drivers with road rage could also use it. The creator says the camera is waterproof.
Streamcam connects to a phone, but the company claims it won't drain the phone's battery during livestreaming. It can be clipped onto clothing or a bag, and the phone can stay hidden. A tap starts the recording.
The creator says footage can be livestreamed to social media or uploaded to the cloud or an SD card.
Streamcam was fully funded on Kickstarter and is expected to start shipping in February.
