The Toshiba Camileo Clip means well; it makes sense to release a semi-ruggedized pocket camcorder for shooting video in slightly more hazardous situations. Smartphones take decent video these days, but nobody in their right mind is going to attempt to use their phone to take video while bike riding, mountain climbing, playing sports, etc. The Clip is a small, marginally tougher, hands-free solution.
At least in theory. The reality is that the Clip doesn't work well in practice, since it's usually sagging from whatever material that it's clipped to, resulting in video that's usually angled downwards and rarely of the intended subject. Combine that with flawed video -- the wildly oversaturated colors are a particular source of concern -- and mostly throwaway photo quality and you've got a pocket camcorder that probably isn't worth its $100 price tag. It may be a relatively low price point, but it's still too much to pay for what essentially amounts to a gimmick.
