Capture reckless drivers (or your latest skydive) with an Action Camera

If I didn't work from home and had anything approaching a decent sense of balance, I could totally see myself cycling to work. But I hear a lot of horror stories from cyclists in major cities about drivers who just don't respect the environmental option and try to hustle bike riders off the road. A company called Action Cameras suggests that cyclists try one of their wireless helmet cameras to catch these criminals in the act. The video cameras attach to a cycling helmet and record directly to an SD card (up to 2 GB is available).

A more fun use for a helmet cam could be using it to record your latest extreme sports adventure: from skydiving to bungee jumping to white water rafting (yep, they're waterproof, too).

There's even a Tony Hawk-branded cam so you can capture the view from your latest nollie.

The company ships throughout Europe but not to the US or Canada, so if you want one of these it might be time to make friends across the pond...

Prices start at £89.98 ($180) not including batteries.
