The folks at Looxcie, who brought us the BlueTooth enabled, over the ear camera for Android, have launched a new app called Looxcie Live. Looxcie live is a multiple person video chat application that allows you to video chat with one person or multiple people.
Looxcie live works on an invite model which lets the user invite friends from social media like Facebook, to participate in a group video chat. If your friends miss your invitation there is a replay function so your friends can watch your video live.
Looxcie Live utilizes any of your Android devices cameras including the Looxcie camera. Using the Looxcie camera you can bring a whole new dimension to group video chatting. For instance do you have that class clown stuntman friend? Is he or she getting ready to do the ski jump in Oslo Norway, or get fired out of a cannon? Well with their mounted Looxcie camera the group can watch this unbelievable feat live, and replay it for 24 hours.
