A new Kickstarter project has paired the functionality of a GoPro with the wearability of a kitschy lapel pin. The Shonin Streamcam Wearable Camera has already soared well beyond its initial funding goal. In fact, the campaign is going so well that the brand is already innovating–they’ve since stretched their goal to make Low-Light Mode available on the camera sooner than later. Either way, this vision is most definitely becoming a reality.
The Shonin Streamcam Wearable Camera almost looks like a toy, but operates like a sturdy gadget. The package consists of a camera, a magnetic clip, a regular clip and a charging cord. Simply clip the waterproof wearable to your garment or accessory of choice. Then it’s one touch of the lower panel and you’re recording footage while a built-in mic captures audio.
The camera includes an internal SD card with 64 GB of storage, and also uses LTE connectivity to sync with the cloud or platforms like Facebook Live. Expect 720p resolution if you’re uploading onto the cloud and either 720p or 1080p when saving onto the internal SD card. Meanwhile, an attachable battery pack can double the battery life.
Available in a variety of colours, the Shonin Streamcam is cute, functional and wearable. It’s therefore no wonder that the gadget is performing so well on Kickstarter. We just hope this thing’s patented because GoPro will definitely be taking notice.
