Watch the hatcam here: http://bit.ly/newshourhatcam

The PBS NewsHour hatcam has been an emerging sensation at the national political conventions.

The tool itself is a red plastic hard hat outfitted with a Go Pro HD camera, shotgun microphone and LiveShell broadcast transmitter that beams out onto our UStream channel live. And it has allowed us to capture the convention from one more perspective -- at eye level with delegates, media members and politicians, and unencumbered by bulky photography gear.
