Has technology gotten out of hand? With so many people willing to completely tell EVERYTHING about their lives through avenues like Facebook, Twitter, Ustream and more, have we gotten out of hand with technology?  If you don’t think so, here is another device to help you tell it ALL!  The “LOOXCIE” is a wearable bluetooth/wi-fi camera that sits on your ear like a headset.  It can store 5 hours of video and will email short clips to all of your social media.  Is this a good idea?  Why or why not? Who would be interested in something like this?  Who is this being marketed towards? (Must be at least  5 COMPLETE sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

    I don’t think it is a good idea. Because what if you go to the bathroom and forgot to turn it off? What if you fall? What if something personal happens in your life then everyone knows all of your business. I think dumb people would buy this!

    I think this is a good idea because its a headset and a camera.I think a lot of people would be interested in something like this because its a headset and a camera that can hold 5 hours of video in one.I think its gets marketed toward a lot of people and a lot of people will probably use it because it makes things so much easier for people to do things. I don’t think technology is getting out of hand at all.

    Yes i think this is a good idea because it is easy to use. I think a lot of people would by this because it would let people use to hands and still catch stuff on camera.

    i think we have got a little out of hand with technology. this new invention is a good idea and people can use it for alot of things such as funny videos, holiday times, and your childs memories. all you have to do is put it on your ear and it will record for 5 hours straight. this is a good useful idea and will be useful in the future. the kind of people that would buy this is buisness type people for presentations and people that go hiking or something to get a video of the woods.

    I think it is not a good idea because while people would be driving they would try to watch the video and wreck

    i don’t think it is a good idea. people shouldn’t tell everything about their lives. they don’t know who is watching it. they don’t know who is gonna see it. people shouldn’t be so careless about that stuff.

    I think this is a bad idea. Nobody needs to know what you are doing 24-7. All this is doing is putting people in danger. What if somebody forgets that they are wearing it and do something that they would not want anyone to see? I think this device is targeted toward people who are constantly on Facebook or Myspace or some other social website. I think this is kind of creepy. That’s a little bit too much like a stalker if you ask me.

    no i don’t think its a good idea because what if you post it and write on one f your statuses be back later. what if you have some weird stalker. they could find out where you live and break into your house while your gone. then you will never know who did it. and what if you had it on and you went to see your boyfriend or girlfriend and they broke up with you. then that will embarrass you and everyone can see it.

    I DON’T THINK THIS IS A GOOD IDEA. THIS COULD BE HARMFUL TO ANYONE. BECAUSE ANYONE COULD FIND OUT WHERE YOU ARE. AND THAT PERSON COULD GET HURT. PEOPLE SHOULD BE CAREFUL WHAT THEY POST.

    I think is a good invention. But only if you don’t keep it on all the time. If you did, then that would attract stalkers. And that would only put you in danger. So, i think people should buy this for random funny moments, events, etc.

    yes i think technology has gotten out of hand. Because there is so many things that could just be simple that can do more than most stuff. i know its a good thing though. Because think if we didn’t have these things. life wouldn’t be as easy. and i like this looxcie thing. i think it would make it a lot easier to upload videos.

    i don’t think technology has gotten out of hand at all. and i don’t think the people that make most of this stuff are worried about if it’s gotten out of hand as long as it’s selling. i think this is a good idea because it’s less weight you have to hold it’s and its easier to handle. i think this will sell. and i would buy it. but its also easier to loose and easier to break.

    Maybe a little. I mean we are getting dumber as technology gets better. In BC times people were smart. They had to figure all of what is now from scratch. That’s like make a plasma TV from scratch.

    i would be scared to use this because there is bad people in this would and i would just be giving myself away to a kid napper and also this money would go towards the company that made it i think that this will be a bad invention and i do think that some people would get this and also this would cause alot more kidnappings in the world

    This is the invention of going too far. Nobody wants to know what your doing 24/7, and no one wants to see it either. This is just stupid, unless used in a useful manner. Like to help a sick friend take notes.

    I think it’s a good idea. It would let people know what I’m doing. Employers could have their employees wear it so they can see if they are doing their job or not. I think it’s aimed more toward teenagers so their friends can see what they are doing.

    This is a tough one. Some people might like some people won’t. So it’s like an 50/50 question. I mean it would sell but it could have some disadvantages to it. People might break them and want their money back and plenty of other stuff. And plus this is like stealing another person idea. The reason i’m saying this is because we have new Camcorders and camras. We even have special bluetooths that can do great things. So i’m saying no it’s a bad idea.

    i think that it is cool because you can catch someone in the act and you wont have to worry about all of the cords of a regular video recorder as you wouldnt have to worry about all of the cords on a digital camera recorder and the cool thing is peope wont know that you are recording they will think that it is a bluetooth

    Well i don’t think technology is getting out of hand because the stuff that people are inventing keeps getting better and better. I think the headset camera is a good idea because now some people don’t need to carry their camera in their hand all the time.

    yes and no .because what if some people is on some freaky stuff .like wanna show them having sex or killing an animal or worse a person .they might do some things that most people don’t wanna and don’t need to see .and then yea because some people might actually have common sense and make a decetn funny video .or about something informational .
