Video [Q] Time-Lapse Camera on a hat?

Experts,

Iím trying to think about how can I continuously record a two days hiking trip as a time-lapse video using my mobile device.

There are few Apps in the play store that I could use to do this (time lapse) , but the software is not the problem.
My concern is the hardware.

I thought I might try to somehow attach my Note2 to a baseball hat, but I don't think that is practical.
Not only I would look funny with a note2 attached to my forehead, but I will need to use my phone for other stuff.

Then, I found out that there are apps that I could use to connect an external usb camera (i.e. webcam) , this way I could leave my phone in my pocket and use it while it is connected by a cable to the external Camera. But, I don't think that those apps will let me use other Time-lapse camera recording apps. And if I connect an external Camera, then the usb port will not be available to charge my phone with my portable 12800mah charger (remember two days of recording) !!.


Any ideas ..thought?

regards,

The closest thing I found was a Looxcie bluetooth camera, but it looks like you cant do timelapsed video with that.

Just a thought, have you considered a GoPro? I dont know if they can to timelapsed either???
