It’s all too common to see a sea of smartphones, at-attention and up in the air, at a live event. Whether a concert, or sports game, or protest, many attendees are now using the devices at their fingertips to record the events in front of them for later viewing and sharing. You wouldn’t expect the latest recording and livestreaming technology to come from Ubiquiti Labs, a division of Ubiquiti Networks, which mostly makes Wi-Fi mesh products—but it does.
The new $399 FrontRow camera made by Ubiquiti Labs is part-lifestyle, part-action cam that you can tote in multiple ways to capture everything going on in front of you.

The small, disk-like device can be worn on your clothes using a clip attachment, on your neck with an included chain, or on other accessories like a dashboard mount. With its two cameras, an 8MP rear and 5MP front-facing, you can record video, take photos, and livestream to social media accounts with a press of a button.
There’s also an interesting Story mode that takes a photo every few seconds and strings the best of those photos together to make a quick, montage-like video.
