AXON Flex And Stross' Cop Specs

The AXON Flex offers police officers the ability to record full point-of-view video and stash it in a safe place.


(Axon Flex video)

POV Video – When it matters most... Show what really happened
Your perspective matters. Point of view video is not only critical in capturing what really happened but also getting that video record accepted as evidence. In a ground breaking US Supreme Court Case (Graham v. Connor 490 U.S. 386 (1989)) the court stated, “The ‘reasonableness’ of a particular use of force case must be judged from The Perspective of a Reasonable Officer on the Scene.”

Retina Low Light – Because most critical events happen at night
With Retina Low-Light we’ve used advanced imaging technology to increase the camera’s light sensitivity, allowing each pixel to capture light comparable to the human retina. We’ve highly customized this capability to give our users spectacular low light imaging that was designed to match the human eye. Retina Low-Light – there’s nothing else like it.

Full Shift Video Buffer– You never know when the action will happen
Reach back 30 seconds into the past and retrieve the events leading up to the event. When your honor is on the line, don’t let a 3-second cell phone clip define you. The AXON Flex controller has a 12+ hour battery that allows for full shift video buffer.

Fans of David Brin's 1990 novel Earth recall his True-Vu Lenses that can be used to record POV video and then upload it.

Charles Stross describes it exactly in his 2007 novel Halting State; he calls it a police officer's lifelong.
