About the Project

A lot of people will tell you that while it’s nice to have videos of your activities, the hassle of having to run the camera can detract from your enjoyment of those very activities. You could use a head-mounted camera like a Go-Pro or even Google Glass, but not everyone wishes to look so ...cyborg-like. That’s where the customizable appearance of FOMO comes into play.

Reality Check

  • Claim:

    The World's Most Wearable Camera

  • Reality:

    It is often mentioned in reviews, that anytime a campaign mentions "World's Most/First/Best" the riskiness of actuality is raised. Here, the FOMO is an option in a market that is new, but exists. The most high profile wearable cameras are Google Glass and Snap Inc. Spectacles. "Most Wearable" is also an interesting way of putting a claim to be something.

  • Claim:

    FOMO BY YOU

  • Reality:

    Printable surface and the ability to decorate allow the end user to "design" the FOMO for personal preference.

  • Claim:

    YOU DESIGN & WE MAKE IT

  • Reality:

    Through the process provided by FOMO, customization is possible.

  • Claim:

    EFFORTLESS

  • Reality:

    Some exertion will inevitably be needed for the use of FOMO, keep in mind the need for charging, pressing of the button, and preparation. In comparison to how much effort it took to record a video, just a few years ago, the amount of effort required has drastically declined.

  • Claim:

    RECORD EVERY JOURNEY

  • Reality:

    In theory, with an appropriately placed FOMO, recording of any journey is a possibility.

Bottom Line

FOMO is a product that enters the wearable market with potential advantages of mobility, lightweight, easy to use, and unique designs. The tech adds up to make this possible. Keep in mind the Certifications are still in the process and have not been finalized at the time of this review. Also keep in mind the transparency of the project. Functionality and limitations on when you can wear the FOMO are something to consider, when thinking about backing this interesting campaign.
