Taser’s New Camera Turns Every Cop Into Robocop

Taser rolled out a new line of body-wearable cameras for law enforcement today, the Axon Flex line, designed to be worn on sunglasses and record then upload video to the cloud from the officer's point of view. They're delightfully frightening! The 3.2-inch cameras store two hours of footage at a time (which seems short), have a 14 hour battery life, and are compatible with iOS and Android for wireless viewing. They mount on a pair of Oakley Flak Jacket glasses (or hats, or clothes, or helmets, you name it) and automatically record video to a DVR, which is then automatically uploaded to Evidence.com at the end of an officer's shift. They're designed to work in low light. The idea is that the glasses provide two safeguards, one to the public and one to the po-po.


I think it would behoove departments to start adopting this technology so the inevitable he said/she said can be avoided when away from the patrol car. It really does offer police and citizens more protection and I think it could conceivably help. The good cops will be the ones that actually use theirs and don't let them 'accidentally detach'. If I were a cop I would sure as hell be wearing one of these things to cya (or I suppose cma).

I'm guessing the two hour battery life will run out at the most inopportune times, as in just when an individual needs it be running to prove innocence. I do like the concept it would help get rid of crooked cops if it was on at all times.

The battery life is 14 hours. It stores two hours on the device but my understanding is that the video is uploaded to a 'cloud' so the entire shift would be viewable.

I'd like to see politicians wear them too.

Good idea from the company. Could prevent further taser-gun abuse.

I like the idea of all politician wearing them, then we could be the big brother to big brother. We could actually watch the hen house for a change.
