This is the smallest package I've ever seen. It's around 4.25" x 3" x 1.75".
The whole box fits in/on a palm.
Here's how the box looks side-by-side with normal dashcam product box:

The camera is in a metallic housing.
Front has just the lens.
Also here is BulletHD and Innovv C3 body for size comparison.

The Nautilus action camera has great build quality.
It feels solid and buttons also have good feel.
The tripod mount fits very snug with the camera so it should hold it good during use.

Charging the Nautilus cam currently which seems to take a long time.
Once it's fully charged, it's supposed to last for over 1.5 hurs.
I'll do some DIY type mount to use as a dashcam.

Here's unboxing video:

It's funny how things work out.
I was wondering on how to mount it in the car and voila, my car already had the mount all ready for it.
This is the advantage of having multiple dashcams and leaving their mount attached on the windshield even when the dashcam is not there. 
Now who can guess what dashcam the mount belongs to? ;)

Overall Summary:
Considering the low price and form factor (size) of the Nautilus Nemo's Eye action camera, video quality is very good.

This Nautilus Nemo's Eye is a very small, compact action camera with over 1.5 hours battery life plus it's waterproof for those who like water sports like surfing, water-ski, jet-ski etc...
Can use as a dashcam as well as action cam when needed outside the car or vice versa depending upon what the primary use is.
Tripod mount bracket makes it easier to mount anywhere with appropriate accessories like handlebar mount.
Also has Wi-Fi that works pretty good.
It's a small package that has a lots of features that usually only are available in expensive dashcams.

Video quality impression: 

As shown in the video samples above, the video quality is very good considering the price and form factor (size) of the camera.
Very good VBR @ 18mbps.

Audio quality impression: 
1. Audio quality has no distortion and sounds fairly fine except the volume is lower than normal volume.
2. Audio has little hollow/hall type quality. It could be due to the waterproof housing.
Listen to audio in the videos above.
2. There is slight hiss on the video, specially when the camera is stationary.

I've sent these feedback to the manufacturer and they are working on improving it even more.
