A Quick Look at Ca7ch Lightbox Camera

Somebody please get engineers a date or two. I can't keep up with all of this innovation! Your next recording device might be a 1.5 inch camera called Lightbox from Ca7ch.

This is currently a Kickstarter campaign but it is gonna happen one way or another. Basically your can have Lightbox record a single photo, quick video or audio. That isn't all that new; other devices can do that as well.

What is a bit different is that by using your Smartphone the video can be transmit the recordings directly to the cloud. You can attach the gizmo to your clothing; press a button and record what every you encounter and transmit to another location?

The is good. This is also creepy; in a good way. Not to mention you will need to increase your data plan. Wait; almost forgot the important part -- yes there will be an Android as well as an iOS app to help you do the do.

Let's see, there is an 8MP camera that record 1080p at 30fps.  It is connected to your phone via WiFi or Bluetooth and the video is stored on the Ca7ch servers.

I can't quite get a bead on the retail price; I'm guessing it is $180. That gets you the device and 5GB storage on their cloud.

Anyway, I gotta go but wanted to give a head's up about it. I've already violated my once a year Kickstarter rule but that doesn't mean you can't check it out the Lightbox campaign.
