The $29.99 pocket-sized camcorder was developed by Pure Digital Technologies Inc., a San Francisco-based start-up company."


That's amazing! To get your video out, you return it to the store, where they burn a DVD for you for $12.95. They keep and recycle the camcorder (i.e., sell or more like 'rent' it to someone else).
