There are no electronics inside, just a pair of lenses that create the effect.
You can’t shoot all your videos with a helmet-cam so when you’re done playing, Canon’s new 70D will help document the rest of your life.

It looks like a vintage knapsack but inside it’s got a padded, 31-liter, adjustable camera pod with 12 dividers for a custom DSLR or video camera set-up. There’s also a padded sleeve for an iPad or 11-inch MacBook Air, external pockets, and the design is backed with a lifetime guarantee. via
