GoPro Bringing Live Streaming, Camera Controlling Smartphone App

GoPro Hero2 HD sports camera developing iPhone and android app for live streaming video and remote control up to 50 cameras

This fall, perhaps as early as late summer, GoPro will release an iPhone/Android app that’ll link up with its WiFi BacPac and let you remote control up to 50 Hero2 cameras from your phone.

Initially, it’ll also let you view recorded footage from any BacPac equipped camera. By the end of the year, it should also let you live stream video to your smartphone via wifi. Altogether, that combines the benefits of the WiFi and LCD BacPacs. The app will be free, and the WiFi kit is $99.

” Now where does the extra battery pack go? ”

nowhere along with all of the other accessories like the lcd screen bac pac. it would have been nice of you could have a housing that allowed back to back bac pacs but I guess that would not be for everyone.

the other thing I did not like with this wifi fi back pac is you can turn the camera off from the remote but the wifi bac pac has to stay on you can only shut that off manually. and you can charge both together they use different cables

still a kick ass camera though and they wont please everyone but a few tweaks abd they have a even better product so for now you have to carry the extra battery and remember to shut off the wifi.

Since GoPro’s coders can’t seem to produce a working App; instead of having the promise of an App that never materializes–Coming Soon, how about putting out a Developer’s Kit for the GoPro HD and offer a prize for the best App submission. There are some very talented people out there!
