Deja View Inc. (Brick, NJ), the first company to introduce a wearable digital mini-camcorder with "after-the-fact" recording technology for the consumer market, announced it has contracted with Advent Electronics Pte Ltd. (Singapore) to build its products.
Terms of the strategic partnership were not disclosed, but according to Jeff Sobel, executive vice president of Deja View, Advent "is committed to deliver the products in the quantities we specified to meet our scheduled June launch."

The recording device and digital storage are housed in a PDA-sized unit worn on a belt, waistband or fanny pack. The camera, which will sell for under $400, records 30 seconds of action that occurred before the user presses the record button.
