Tokyo-based Fairy Devices figures a wearable camera for workers isn’t the same as one for bungee jumpers. Linklet is for presentations and meetings, with easy connection to Zoom and Microsoft Teams. A videoconferencing wearer could switch to wide-angle first-person view to show everyone a hands-on demonstration. The necklace-like design is surprisingly unobtrusive and keeps video steady. “A head mount is not natural for humans,” says Fairy Devices Chief Strategy Officer Yuichiro Takezaki. Five microphones capture crisp audio even amid background noise. It’s now selling in Japan with a hefty monthly fee for its LTE connection, which enables streaming from anywhere. The U.S. market is under consideration for 2023.
