Beyond Awesome: Roller Coaster Planet Through the Lens of Six GoPro Cameras

To say that the things you can do with a GoPro is limitless is no exaggeration. It’s the world’s most versatile camera, used by amateurs, hobbyists, professionals, and everyone else in between. In case you’ve been living under a rock and have no idea what a GoPro is, well, it’s a waterproof and shockproof HD video camera that’s compact and comes with a wide variety of mounts for added versatility.

The clip above, dubbed as LittlePlanet RollerCoaster, is an example of the awesomeness that you can achieve with the GoPro–well, six of them, actually, and video editing software VideoStitch. Mounted on strategic areas, the resulting video turns the roller coaster into its very own planet, taking you along on a very scenic and exhilarating ride. If this doesn’t inspire you to go out there and shoot something artistic, then I don’t know what will.

Lomo’Instant Camera: Instant Photos With Added Options

Lomo’Instant Camera

Instant cameras aren’t anything new, but Lomography manages to bring something new to the table with the Lomo’Instant camera. If you’ve ever used a Polaroid or a Fujifilm Instax, then you know that shooting options for instant cameras are quite limited. Basically, you just point and shoot and hope for the best as you wait for your photos to develop.

That’s where the Lomo’Instant camera starts to differ. First of all, it’s packed with a bunch of additional options and extra features so you can tweak settings and shoot more creatively. It’s programmed with three shooting modes, so you’re in control when it comes to lighting. Plus you can shoot unlimited multiple exposures so you can experiment and combine multiple shots into one frame.

Not-a-Camera Wooden Camera Necklace is Actually a Camera

Wooden Camera Necklace

So this is the Not-a-Camera necklace, and it’s the exact opposite of what it’s name says it is. The necklace features a larger-than-the-usual wooden pendant in the shape of a camera, and even though it’s name insists that it isn’t a camera, it actually is. It’s hard to believe that this thin wooden thing is capable of taking 3.5-megapixel pictures, but it can be used to record HD video too.

The Not-a-Camera’s maker, Olivia, originally made the camera for her 101-year-old grandmother (who also happens to be named Olivia), so that the latter would have a camera at hand (or rather, around her neck) that was both light and easy to use.

Peek-i

Whatever your reasons are for wanting to spy on your surroundings or the people around you, then here’s something that can help you out: the Peek-I, which is basically an attachment for your iPhone that’ll let you see around corners or areas at odd angles that you normally won’t be able to see with your eyes alone.

Peek-I is meant to go over your camera lens, where it works its magic by reflecting images this way and that to let you check blind areas and take images at a 90-degree angle.Continue Reading

Ain’t What It Seems: Covert Motorcycle Security Camera

Motorcycle Security Camera

Security cameras come in different shapes and sizes. Some are extremely small, such as the ones installed in clocks and fixtures, for example. Others are large but still discrete, like this motorcycle security camera by Japan Security System Co. As the name implies, it’s a security camera in the shape of a motorcycle. Despite being much larger than your typical security camera, it relies on just that to keep a low profile.

They’re meant to be installed at the entrances of hotels and other establishments where it would be uncommon to find a motorcycle there. Instead of head and tail lights, it has off-the-shelf video cameras installed instead. Two side-facing cameras are also installed on the seat.Continue Reading

Point and Click, Point and Shoot with the Camera Mouse

Camera Mouse

What’s one thing that you constantly take with you when you’ve got your laptop? Unless you’ve mastered scrolling and maneuvering through documents, spreadsheets, and canvases on image-editing software with just your touchpad, then your answer to that question would be your mouse.

When you’re in front of your computer and on a roll and happen to see something worthwhile that you want to take a picture of, would you actually stand up and walk across the room to grab your camera or smartphone to take a shot? If you answered no, then you’ll find this Camera Mouse worth having.

Three Gadgets People Have Longed For That Are Now a Reality

GadgetsCollage

I’m not going to lie. I grew up with the dream of becoming a writer one day, and the thing that I wanted people to invent the most was that telepathic typewriter from The Tommyknockers. In case you aren’t familiar with this particular Stephen King story, the main character is a writer who builds a battery-powered typewriter after coming into contact with a thing buried in the ground. It’s not your everyday typewriter, since it was capable of reading his thoughts and typing up pages and pages of work, even while he was sleeping.

Imagine what the lives of writers would be like if they had a typewriter like this. I just finished reading the book again, so the whole thing is fresh to me. And every time I think about that typewriter, I remember all the other things that we only used to dream about that are real now: smart fridges, telepathic cameras, and gesture control devices.
