If you want to record or livestream what happens around you, and don’t want to carry a traditional camera or smartphone, the Shonin could offer you a compact solution.
The small camera, currently on Kickstarter, is marketed as a security device – with the ability to clip onto a shirt or bag strap.
The Shonin can be attached with a clip or magnetic backing, and starts recording with a tap on the unit.
Wi-Fi or cellular connections can be used to stream the camera’s feed to social media platforms like Facebook Live.
Users who want their videos to remain private can record them to the Shonin cloud service. If no connectivity is available, videos are stored on an internal 8GB SD card.
The camera is IP67 waterproof and supports GPS tracking, and can capture in 720p or 1080p for 2.5 hours on a single charge.
The camera, set to ship in February 2018, is available for the following pledges:
- Shonin Wi-Fi – $169
- Shonin Wi-Fi and Cellular – $199
