Screencasting the real world

I’m a fan of screencasts; no news there. But I was talking to some folks today, which lead to some thinking tonight, which leads me to this: If only we could screencast for real world ( i.e not tied to my computer) activities.  Capturing real world activities has a ways to go before it reaches the simplicity and self contained nature of screencasting, but it would be a tremendous thing if it could reach that point. Think of the lost knowledge that could be caught before it slips away.

Which leads to the question – what, currently, approaches this model? Are there examples of current efforts that don’t demand a lot of expense and expertise that are currently capturing the real world? Time to google…..
