Discontinued - Sorry, but
Casio stopped manufacturing this watch.
So you want X-Ray Stealth? How about an infrared, X-Ray
capable watch capable of storing 100 images. We modified this watch so
that you can to IR pictures. We fitted a special infrared pass/visible
light blocking filter that is permanently attached. You can
even view the image live on the monitor (120x120) built into the watch or play
back stored images. Aside from the X-Ray capability, the watch also can
act as a normal watch, timer and stopwatch. You can also transfer images
to your PC using a wireless infrared port built into the watch.
Example X-Ray pictures using the Casio Watch.
Here is the setup for the test. The color picture was
taken with a Sony DSC-S30 camera. The Casio WQV-1 is a black and white
fabrics have been banded around a tubular pillow. You can see other
example shots with different cameras here.
All the black and white shots are real pictures taken by our
X-Ray enabled Casio WQV1 wrist watch camera. Pictures were taken under
typical incandescent lights indoors! Outdoor pictures would be even
multi-test setup shot from the Casio WQV1.

A built-in 16-grayscale monochrome LCD panel acts as both the
viewfinder and an on-the-spot playback monitor. Enough memory capacity is
provided to store up to 80 images and infrared data communication. These Wrist
Camera watches also feature 5 alarms which can be set up to display a specific
digital image when each alarm time is reached. Images can be transferred to a
computer and viewed by using the Wrist Camera watches internal software. A library of
images can be stored on your desktop and then transferred back to a Wrist Camera
or e-mailed to friends.

|Wrist-type wearable B&W digital camera|
The super compact, lightweight configuration of the Casio Wrist Camera means
it is always on your wrist, whenever that magic moment presents itself. You
can send images to your friends, family, and colleagues, opening up a
totally new world of digital communication.
|25,000-pixel Black & White CMOS sensor|
Monochrome image recording is made possible by a 25,000-pixel (144 x 176 pixels) CMOS sensor. You can use IR data communication to transfer images to a
computer where you can display them.
|16-grayscale monochrome STN LCD monitor screen|
The 120 x 120-dot LCD serves as a viewfinder when recording images and as a
monitor screen for on-the-spot viewing of images.
|Image data transfer with a personal computer|
The Wrist Camera comes complete with infrared data communication
capabilities. Simply connect the IR adapter to your computer and install the
bundled link software and you can transfer images to your computer for
editing, touch up, and long-term storage. When necessary, you can transfer
images back to the Wrist Camera. You can even use Wrist Camera images to
create your own, original screen saver.
|Image exchange with another Wrist Camera|
Images can be transferred between two Wrist Cameras quickly and easily using
IR data exchange.
|Memory storage for up to 100 images|
1MB of built-in memory provides enough storage for up to 100 images (JPEG
compressed). Images can be recorded and deleted as many times as you want.
An Auto Date feature automatically records the date (year, month, day) and
time (hour, minutes) you record the image along with the image data.
|Visual Data Bank for storage of phone numbers with portraits|
After you record an image you can input up to 24 characters (12 characters
in the upper line, 12 characters in the lower line) of memo text. A simple
operation inputs alpha characters or numbers, so you can record a person's
portrait and then input their name and telephone number. A Thumbnail Screen
allows display of up to 16 images on a single screen.
|User-friendly features and functions|
An Auto Power Save feature automatically turns power off whenever it detects
that the Wrist Camera is not being worn on the wrist, which minimizes
The press of a button records an image (except in the Visual Databank Mode
or Communication Mode), which means that recording is quick and easy.
Two recording modes - 50 Hz and 60 Hz.
|Timekeeping, alarm, timer, and calendar functions|
