IS POV SHOOT AND PLAYBACK HEADWEAR THE FUTURE?

From looking around to get ideas for the POV stereoscopic headgear prototype II, I have started to see other people doing similar whacky helmet cams like the one above… as high quality cameras get smaller and cheaper it makes sense that this is one branch in filmaking soon to evolve- proven by this article about using POV playback for parachuting simulation…

Also I recently got kindly donated a airforce i-combat game that has the perfect structure to adapt attach the tech onto, rather than the B&Q helmet that clamped down hard onto the wearers ears and on one occasion cut the bridge of a guinea pigs nose! (but it wouldn’t be a first prototype without these little issues right?)
