In-Q-Tel said Looxcie will develop new video cameras for the Department of Homeland Security’s science and technology directorate, one of In-Q-Tel’s customers.
Looxcie’s cameras have potential in both government and commercial markets, CEO Romulus Pereira said in a release.
The company also wants to expand its offerings in the security market, he added.
According to the release, Looxcie created the world’s first mobile-connected, handsfree, wearable video camera.
In November 2011, the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based firm launched LooxcieLive, a first group-cast live video streaming platform.
