O'Neill H3 Camera Backpack

O'Neill has developed a backpack for outdoors enthusiasts who want to record their expeditions as well as any traveler who wants to capture video without a conspicuous camera. The H3 CamPack includes a micro camera lens in its right shoulder strap, and a joystick on the left to aim the lens. Any standard DV camera can connect to this lens or a second, goggle- or helmet-mounted lens to obtain video without endangering the actual video device, says O'Neill. A Bluetooth transmitter has been added to enable hands-free calling, and the backpack can interface with any docking iPod to use the shoulder straps as basic music navigation tools. The H3 already ships in Europe at stores such as Air-Head for 220 ($415 US). North American availability hasn't been determined.
