Going Digital - Philips Key019

 Wearable digital camera (Key Ring)



iF Design Award 2005

The Key019 GoGear Digital Camcorder is the first of a kind: a micro display, digital camera, audio MP3 player and USB mass storage function all in one ultra-compact product that weighs just 60 grams.

With 128MB memory, the GoGear Camcorder can record 25 minutes of high quality MPEG4 video with sound, snap up to 200 pictures at a quality of 2.0 mega-pixels, store up to 16 hours worth of music or act as a mass storage device to transfer data.

The intuitive user interface is super-simple and direct. You can even operate the Key 019 with one hand using the three steps on the ring switch to rotate between modes. GoGear also doesn't use any cables - it plugs directly into your computer's USB port for recharge and download. Now you can shoot, share and wear at once!
