Robin Good's insight:
Thanks to PlanetMitch I have just found out that Toshiba will be shipping in the fall of this year (2013) new SDHC memory cards capable of writing speeds of up to 240 MB/s, and reading ones up to 260 MB/s.
The new series of SDHC cards is called Exceria Pro series is UHS-II compliant and will be initially available in 16 and 32 GB sizes. Toshiba claims these new cards to be the world's fastest-writing SDHC memory cards available.
Robin Good: The 720p Camera Eyewear is a clear glass pair of fake glasses equipped with a 720p HD video micro-camera capable of recording on a 8GB memory all that you are seeing.
The camcorder easily connects to any computer and no driver is needed. It can record up to 5 hours camera and it can take up to 1 photo per second.
Price: $143.99 on Amazon
N.B.: It is not clear whether this video camera also records sounds.
This is a video demonstration of the new and free High Dynamic Range VIDEO feature for control over ultra contrast shooting situations.
HDR Video stands for High Dynamic Range. In essence you can record video with two exposure values one under and over, and then to combine these two streams together to generate video that offers great shadow and highlight details.
Magic Lantern is a custom firmware add-on for Canon DSLR cameras capable of providing HDR capabilities and many other fine controls not normally available in the camera. These include turning off AGC for audio, enabling the AV port for audio monitoring via headphones, a waveform to check background illumination, individual controls for exposure and shutter speed during video recording, and more.
It is not a hack, or a modified firmware, but it runs alongside Canon's own firmware, booting from the card every time you turn the camera on.
The only modification to the original firmware is the ability to boot software from the card.
Magic Lanter is open source and licensed under GPL.

Robin Good: Vyclone is a new free iPhone app which allows you to include and remix your own video footage with the ones of your friends recording the same event.
Vyclone synchronizes and edits everyone's clips to create one movie with all the angles cut together. The good thing is that you get the raw footage too. "So if you like, you can remix it to make your own director's cut."
Mashable writes in its review: "...the app lets two or more users create a collaborative video with others who are also shooting an iPhone video in physical proximity to them even if you’re not friends with or even aware the other people are shooting a video. The result is an almost instant multi-angle video of an event that you’ll swear was created by a professional video editor."
