The video recording eyewear startup Pivothead could very well become a household name after its first products hit the market this April for $349.

Pivothead’s camera lens is mounted at a 90-degree angle, so you can expect to record whatever you’re looking at, assuming your eyes are focused directly in front of you.

There’s built-in optical image stabilization, a micro-USB port for charging the glasses, downloading files and adjusting settings, and and three video modes: 1080/30p, 720/60p and 720/30p.¬†Windows, Mac and Android apps will be available at launch.
