Panasonic unveils wearable 4K camcorder

Panasonic unveiled a product Monday that combines two big tech trends—ultra HD and wearable devices— with a portable, camera that hooks onto your ear and records in ultra-high definition 4K video.

Panasonic didn't immediately name the gadget, but it resembles the company's A100 full HD camcorder, which is a smartphone-sized device that straps to a user's arm and is connected by a cable to a tubular device housing the lens.

Julie Bauer, president of Panasonic's consumer electronics division, said the device is waterproof and dust-proof and for the everyday person. Video shot in 4K resolution, which uses about quadruple the pixels found in HD, can be shared via Wi-Fi and viewed on smartphones or ultra HD living room TVs.
