Robin Good: If you have not heard yet about the ZionEyez, here is a set of new video clips that gives you an even better idea of how cool and revolutionary this camcorder-in-a-pair-of-glasses really is.
“Eyez™ embeds a 720p HD video camera within a pair of eyeglasses designed to record live video data and take pictures.
The recorded data can be stored on the 8GB of flash memory within the Eyez™ glasses, transferred via Wifi/Bluetooth or Micro USB to a computer, or wirelessly transferred to most iPhone or Android devices.
After a one-time download of the “Eyez™” smartphone and tablet app, users can wirelessly broadcast the video in real time to their preferred social networking website.”
I have long invested through Kickstarter in Eyez, just enough so that when their first production models will be out, I will be one of the happy owners to try it out.
Here is a clip shot with the Eyez inside Golden Gate Park in San Francisco while riding a bike: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUijxhOhvnU
Here is another one where you can see clearly the type of recording you can get when wearing Eyez and talking to other people: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhBGPHKi0S8&feature=endscreen&NR=1

REXplorer: A mobile cultural heritage game at the Rex Regensburg Explorer Museum in Regensburg, Germany. The game encourages exploration of the city: players use a Wiimote-like device to interact with the city’s monuments, solving puzzles along the way. The game’s story involves helping a professor understand and research Regensburg’s “perpetual magic.” (In reality, exploring the history of the city.) The game also automatically blogs the experience for players to revisit as a memento of the experience.
Jewel of the Valleys: A mystery puzzle from the National Civil War Museum that could be solved using Civil War communication technologies and museum documents. Sadly, the game’s not still online; the link goes to a wiki of all of the game’s clues.
An Expedition with Mr. Mirrors: A one-day game at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, a Victorian-themed game where amnesiac players met strangers in the museum and solved puzzles in hopes of regaining their memories.
