You know, for kids.

Also marketed as Camera-on-o-Stick.

This is a tiny bluetooth camera which has attachments for hooks, magnets, a comb, etc.

With the comb attachment, you can comb the back of your head and see how it looks on your phone's video. Same for picking up or probing things.

       There are countless tiny WiFI cameras available with various attachment options (hooks, magnets, suction cups), as well as endoscopes (camera on the end of a flexible stick).   

       Apart from suggesting Bluetooth vs WiFi, and the specific idea of using one to look at the back of your head - what's new about your idea?

       Well, the app shows you when your attachment is aligned with a target, like the focus on some digital cameras.

       If it's attached to a comb while you're using it, it's constantly moving. Similarly, when I use my endoscope I'm typically moving the camera around to look for something.   

       Can you give a use case where having an app "show when the attachment is aligned with a target" is useful?

       On your screen is a cross which shows the effective range of your attachment. The cross moves or remains stationary depending on camera motion. I feel we are moving perilously close to full bakery and I'm not licensed for that.

       This doesn’t really differ from an endoscope though

       No but "endoscope-on-o-string" is less marketable
