Is it Time to Start Live Streaming Everything That You Do?

Ubiquiti Network's new $400 FrontRow camera is slim, discreet, looks more like a piece of jewelry than a camera and that seems to be the point.

This is an interesting departure for Ubiquiti Networks, who are primarily known for hi-capacity distributed internet access, unified information technology, and next-gen consumer electronics. Most of their products seem to have been made for large corporations and yet, here's something clearly made for the masses.

According to a company press release, "FrontRow's sleek, 55-gram (less than the weight of a typical smart-watch) form-factor was specifically designed to wear conveniently. Unlike traditional cameras and smartphones requiring manual operation, FrontRow can operate fully autonomously -- allowing one to capture life's experiences while completely staying in the moment."

Here's a picture of Lizzie Armanto from Ubiquiti's marketing wearing the new FrontRow camera.

This camera has a sleek touch screen, 48-hour standby time, 16-hours of time-lapse and capable of Live-Streaming for up to 2 hours. That's right, FrontRow's user interface allows instant live streaming on social networks like Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube, as well as integration with applications like Dropbox, Spotify and, is compatible with both iOS and Android.

Although this is really cool, are we as a society ready to become voluntary participants in a 21st-century version of The Truman Show? What if you go the other way? What if employees in the service industry are eventually forced to wear these cameras during work as a form of quality control? What if that then spreads to the government making us wear them all the time? Did Ubiquiti Networks just create big brother!

Aside from all of that, the camera is beautiful, well designed and comes in black, or white and rose gold and is available now on Amazon.
