Wearable webcam records great chunks of your daily life

Here's an odd one.  As far as I can tell, this "TravelCAM" from Vasstek is a 1.3-megapixel battery-powered camcorder that records direct to flash memory.  They seem to be positioning it as a way to record your daily journey through life - whether that be in the car, walking round the block or pottering about at home - with up to 20hrs capacity at 1280 x 1024 resolution.

With AVI and JPG formats it can obviously take photos, too, though with only a power button and a play/pause control (which I assume starts and stops video from being shot) I'm not entirely sure how you switch between it.  It reminds me a little of Microsoft Research's SenseCam which is being used by some people to record and document their entire lives.  I guess it could be handy if you're in a car accident and need to prove that the person in front really did brake randomly.
