Wearable tech has been a little quiet at CES 2024 (despite the efforts of Sony and XReal) but that doesn't mean super innovation is missing from the show. 

One company that caught my eye in the previews was Slimdesign and their PhoneCam. PhoneCam is just that, a wearable camera that attaches to your phone and on the face of it, sounds a bit boring, but when you consider the use cases for it, it's pretty epic.

Dan M Lee
Pro Travel and Adventure Photographer, Educator and Author

Dan M Lee is a professional travel and adventure photographer who has shared his knowledge with hundreds of individuals through his in-person wilderness photography training and thousands more through his writing. That includes a book, Creating Photography: The Professional Edge but the way to get involved is to join him on an expedition via kodiakphotoworkshop.com.

Dan has a broad range of photographic interests – and tech enthusiasm – which he can trace back to his first job, while still at school, in a photography shop in England. He has since been lured across the Atlantic to New York City where he undertakes commissions for numerous publishers.

His extensive traveling means he can be out of his home for more than half the year, which has also seen him develop an interest in smart security systems.

He is also a regular on the Not The Gear and The Grumpy Photographer podcasts.
