So the Qlippie is a small, wearable camera that shoots HD video — not unlike the Narrative Clip 2 or SnapCam. The big idea is that you can clip it onto your clothes or jacket or bag stop and let it capture what you’re experiencing hands-free. It’s a cool premise that I’m personally really interested in because it seems like a great way to do more first-hand living rather than experiencing events through your photos or videos later on.
The Qlippe is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, but still it’s large enough that people will almost certainly notice it when you’re wearing it. True to it’s name, there’s a clip on the back that lets you attach to things.

It can be a little tricky knowing what side is up, but it’s the side with the power button on top. Other than the power button, there are two other buttons: one for switching shooting modes (between video, time-lapse, slow-mo or photo) and one for entering pairing or syncing mode since Qlippie comes with it’s own app.
On the side you’ll also find a mic and a mini-USB port as well.
One interesting thing about the Qlippie is that you can skin it with some included stickers. Personally I could care less about those and don’t really love any of the designs. Actually I really like the plain white look of the Qlippie right out of the box.
In terms of build quality, the Qlippie actually feels really solid. It doesn’t feel cheap and it seems like something that could last for quite awhile. That said, I wouldn’t recommend dropping it on a hard surface because that could definitely scuff it up.
So using the Qlippie is an interesting experience. This is a camera you would use when you want to experience something without having to dig around for your phone. It would be cool if there was a lanyard option that would let you wear the Qlippie around your neck because you don’t always have a jacket or messenger bag on when you want to record something and Qlippie doesn’t really attach to a t-shirt very well unless you have a pocket of some sort. I do really like that it comes with an attachment that will let you mount it on a tripod or gorillapod, though!
So how ...
