The other day, we saw a watch with a camera built into it–but this other product that we found is an even more strange development. The Bilwatch is an accessory that mounts around your wrist and controls your phone’s camera. It can record video and shoot photos–and from the demo video that we have below it is also pretty damn responsive.

The units construction consists of two buttons for shooting photos and shooting/stopping video recording. There are two different LEDS: Green means photo mode, orange for video, blue flash for when it hasn’t connected to the iPhone, blue constant for connected, and red for weak battery.

The watch is being billed as being shockproof, waterproof and will connect to your phone via Bluetooth. While it seems pretty damn cool so far, there is no indication as to whether or not it can tell time–which is the essential functionality of a watch. It’s still a prototype though, so anything can happen.

Check out the demo video below. So far, there is no indication as to whether it will work with Android phones. But the Muku Shuttr does and it works with Bluetooth technology as well.
