Rampant Viewer

Who doesn’t want a camera mounted to their head as they barrel down the slopes. The only problem is that they generally cost a c-note and then some.

Or do they?  The Rampant View straps to your helmet much like a pair of goggles to your head.  Only instead of protecting your eyes there is a rubber casing that has been molded to fit the 5th Gen iPod Nano, you know, the one with the camera built-in.  Need we say more?

So yes, you’ll need the rather pricey and now discontinued 5th gen Nano, but if you’ve already got that in pocket then you’re just $35 away from helmet cam action.  We’re gonna warn you, though, the Rampant Viewer doesn’t appear to protect the front or the camera of the Nano.  So if you take a spill it might cost you.  Also, there is no remote starter so it will be fiddley to say the least.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
