A quick review of the Narrative Clip:

TL;DR: Good idea, bad execution.

Here are some examples:

(1) Given that you don't really know the direction it's pointing the lens should be way more wide angle -- I have lots of cool shots of people's feet or their hair. Another reason for needing basically 180 degrees is that it's often hard to attach the clip in a way that makes it point in the right direction.

(2) The shutter time on the camera is terrible even in bright sunlight; when I run >90% of the pictures are blurry.

(3) Tapping the clip twice to take a picture sounds like a good idea but again, it keeps thinking I tapped it while jogging.

(4) The Android app is slow, doesn't follow Android idioms, and gets wedged. The GPS integration doesn't really work not functional, and scanning clips for resharing is generally tedious and unpleasant.

"star" this issue if you'd like to see Tor (torproject.org) support for Chrome OS and Chrome -- since Chrome OS already supports various VPNs this should be doable with few or no modifcations to Chrome or Chrome OS.
