Transparent Cam is the easiest way to share great moments
Livestreaming is a great way to share big moments with your friends. This wearable camera lets you start broadcasting with one touch.
- According to Livestream.com, 80% of online users would rather watch live video from a brand than read a blog
- On desktop devices, people watch live video for 34.5 minutes on average. That figure drops to 2.6 minutes for regular videos.
- Transparent Cam, a new wearable camera, helps you take advantage of these figures in the easiest way possible.
Just occasionally, we all experience something amazing. You know, the type of thing that makes you say “wow” out loud. The natural reaction for most of us is to share this feeling with friends and family. But while you’re fumbling with your smartphone, the moment is passing. Sunsets do not last forever, after all. Even if you do manage to capture the occasion, you will quickly realize that you saw everything through your phone. This is the frustrating trade-off that Transparent Cam (TCAM for short) hopes to solve. This lightweight wearable camera lets you livestream great moments to your loved ones with a single tap.
Share great moments
Clearly, this isn’t the first wearable camera ever created. It isn’t even the first to provide live streaming. But when Transparent Cam hits the market, this little device is assured of hit status.
Why? Well for starters, the camera is super easy to use. It literally takes one tap to begin streaming and one tap to stop. Furthermore, you don’t need to connect the camera with your phone. Transparent Cam has its own eSIM, meaning you can hook it up to any 4G LTE network.

But the clincher is the price. At just $99, it’s one of the most affordable 1080p wearable cameras currently available.
While Transparent Cam keeps things simple, the device still has plenty of great features.
The camera attaches to your clothing via a magnetic clip, with the large lens pointing forward. This gives your followers a first-person view of great moments, without cramping your style.
The camera captures HD footage at full 1080p, with optical stabilization keeping things steady. The test footage we have seen doesn’t quite match up to the GoPros of this world, but it’s still pretty sharp.
When you hit record, TCAM starts streaming instantly. The device can take advantage of any known Wi-Fi networks, or simply use 4G data. The camera works with YouTube, Facebook, and most other livestreaming platforms. In addition, your footage is sent straight to a personal cloud library. This means you can easily share videos after the event.
Transparent Cam also has built-in GPS, and a neat little screen that tells you who is watching your broadcast. The battery lasts for around two hours, and you can charge the device via any compatible wireless charging pad.
“TCAM has been created from the ground up to be the easiest way to share live video. Simplicity is the key. Press one button and you are ON AIR!” — Stan, CEO of Transparent
