Spectacam Front-and-Rear Facing Action Cam Captures Adventures, Bad Drivers
Designed with front and rear facing video cameras, it’ll capture your adventures from two perspectives cheaper and lighter than mounting up two separate cameras. For commuters, it could be all the proof you need to nab those a-hole drivers that view cyclists as somehow being unworthy of life, liberty and the pursuit.
The Spectacam is the brainchild of Olympian and Malaysian national track cyclist Josiah Ng. Beyond the double video capture, it has a couple other neat features. The first is the independently adjustable lens angles, so you can point them in the right direction in, um, both directions. It’s also light, at around 60g claimed, and will come with versatile mounts for various helmets and other sports equipment. Lastly, it’ll have WiFi and Bluetooth capability and will connect with a smartphone app that will let you control the camera’s functions and view live footage. Pics and more after the break…
Backers of the Kickstarter project can nab a camera for as little as $199 plus shipping. Final retail is set at $349, and units should be available in May 2013 if things stay on schedule.
