The FrontRow Wearable Lifestyle Camera ($399) is a tad less cringey than the Google Glasses.

Matthew’s dad had him toss an extra carabiner down to get...

The pictures are stored onboard with 4GB’s of memory.  Flight time is just 5 minutes which should be fine as selfies shouldn’t last that long. They just shouldn’t! Fly...
