Sony Dev-50 digital binoculars fill a double bill as a still or video camera

Andy Ihnatko | June 5, 2013
"Wow...so they're like Luke Skywalker's binoculars, as seen in Episode IV?"

But if I don't think the DEV-50 is a compelling device I sure think it's an interesting one.The fusion of digital camcorder technology with the binocular form factor allows the DEV-50 to perform familiar functions in a unique way. If I were planning a once-in-a-lifetime trip and I wanted to both enjoy the experience while I'm in the moment and also to share it with friends and family when I got home, I'd want something like this around my neck...if I had that kind of money to spend.

I mean, $2000 will buy you the developer edition of Google Glass and a GoPro camera.But you won't have to walk around with the DEV-50 strapped to your head all the time. That's a serious point in its favor.
