A picture speaks a thousand words, and often video that starts at the halfway point speaks thousand more but often doesn’t portray the actual events as they unfolded. So I personally have been looking for a wearable camera, and have tried various options that just fall short. But now there is hope, as Wolfcom has introduced their Venture wearable 4-1 HD Camera.
Normally as I stated in the past, I try to avoid posting about indigogo and kickstarter programs. The reason being is, more often than not they fail after years of funding. But this one looked so promising I had to share: https://igg.me/at/venturecameral
The venture will feature 2.5 hours of battery life with a 23 hours with an optional battery pack. It weights just 2.2 ounces and can be combined with additional attachments. (Eye Vision, Covert Pinhole Button, Night Vision and Headset.)
By using Venture’s intuitive mobile app, which also acts as a wireless remote control to record video and take photos, users can record and livestream video directly via a wi-fi connection to their smartphone. Live video is then streamed using the phone’s 4G/LTE connection (access to a 4G/LTE connection is necessary for live streaming). They can also grant friends private access to their stream. Additionally, Venture users can use the Remote Access feature from the app and program Venture as a Wireless Security camera to remotely monitor their home, property, kids or pets.
“With Facebook and YouTube Live becoming very popular across all generations, we designed Venture to be the world’s first wearable Live Stream camera designed for everyone,” said Peter Austin Onruang, founder and president, WOLFCOM. “With Venture, anyone can be a Star. It’s like having your very own broadcasting studio wherever you go. Just clip the camera where you want and capture and stream from your point of view – it’s that easy.”
I am really looking forward to this, I have seen similar items on Kickstarter and IndieGoGo and they have been requesting funding for months even years with no actual product. Hopefully the Venture makes it to market, I’d buy it.
The venture has a funding goal of $25,000 and will offer early bird specials at $149.
