We're not sure who's more shocked here; The retail worker who learned the power symbol isn't a camera, or the tech support dude who had to tell them?
Ever want to chuck your GoPro to get good aerial shots but don't have the right foam padding not to break it? Enter AER.
Their new invention--basically a giant Nerf arrow around a GoPro--makes it possible.
The videos sound like they wouldn't be worth seeing, but are surprisingly action-packed little bits of fun. I especially like the parts where it looks like you'll run smack into someone at the end of each one:
Pick yours up here.
If you're a hipster L.A.-girl who likes to skateboard, then the new Snapchat video sunglasses called "Spectacles," are made just for you.
As Snap's (formerly Snapchat) first product, they take 10-second (up to 30 seconds) of hands-free video clips you can upload to your account. You can now take video as you do your normal, relatable, routine of skateboarding in an empty swimming pool, skateboarding down the beach sidewalk, or even skateboarding while holding hands in a chain with your hipster girlfriends!
For all your skateboarding Snapchat usages, they cost $130 and are being distributed to a select group to hype them at this time. Designed by tech heads, the reviews are mixed as people decide if they actually want to try this one out.
Check out the spec's--ahem--specs here, and tell us in the comments below if you'd buy these.
You gotta hand it to them, people in Portland sure are industrious.
On the one hand, you've got this guy whose goal it is to poop in public areas. He comes prepared and he gets the job done.
On the other hand, you've got a business owner who can't take it anymore. So he sets up a hidden camera to tape the pooper pooping, then creates flyers of the fecal fugitive's face and posts them all over town.
Local station KOIN has been tireless in their efforts to see justice served.
Many Southeast Portland residents want to know the circumstances behind the man who has been captured doing his business outside a building near SE 58th and Powell.
"I find it interesting that he has toilet paper with him, it's very pre-planned," Catrina Salazar, who works nearby at Phix Hair Studio, told KOIN 6 News. "You just don't really know what to expect around here. People, they like do their own thing, they kind of march to the beat of their own drum."
The business owner said the latest incident happened over the weekend. Since it wasn't the first offense, he decided to deem the suspect the 'Portland Pooper'.
The police are on the case and this BM fiend could face "offensive littering" charges.
But you know, he's already had pictures of his face circulated while taking a crap, so the punishment has already begun.
Ryan Chatfield was out playing with his drone on Floreat Beach in Australia this week, when its batteries died.
The videographer then sprinted after the expensive toy (he said it cost him over $2000) and managed to catch it before it took a dive in the ocean.
“I thought, ‘That’s it, it’s gone’ but I knew I just had to have a crack at it,” he told The West Australian.
And fortunately he was successful in his rescue attempt and just got a little wet in the process. He also chose the perfect song to edit into the clip using Enya’s “Orinoco Flow (Sail Away).”
NBC News reports that an American Airlines flight from San Francisco to New York was required to make an emergency landing in Kansas City on Sunday because one of the 215 passengers found a strange device taped to the ventilation system inside one of the bathrooms on the plane. Originally thought to possibly be an explosive device, what then appeared to be a flash drive turned out to be a small camera disguised as a flash drive. The FBI is currently investigating who the sneaky camera belongs to.
For part of his college thesis, student Jiho Jang created the GIFTY, an instant camera that captures up to five seconds of video. It then will spit out a number of frames that can be assembled into a flipbook for a hand-held GIF. At the moment, Jang's prototype is the only one in existence. Jang, if you're listening, we would totally back your Kickstarter.
Memoto is a mini portable "life-logging" camera that automatically takes two geotagged snapshots a minute everywhere you go.
