Joby targets action cams with new bendable suction cup mounts

Joby targets action cams with new bendable suction cup mounts

We've seen many products from Joby over the years, such as the MPod and GPod Mini tripods last year and the magnetic Gorillapod from 2010. The company is back again, this time with a flexible mount designed specifically for action cameras: the Suction Cup & Locking Arm, and the Suction Cup & GorillaPod Arm. Unlike magnet-based tripods and mounts, the suction cup varieties can be stuck to just about any surface, whether it is made of metal, plastic, glass, or polished wood.

Lytro cuts deals with NASA and DoD for camera dev kit

Innovative light field camera specialist Lytro has inked new deals with NASA and the US Department of Defense, among others, launching its Lytro Platform and companion development kit for pushing new ways of implementing the technology.

Astronauts trap GoPro in floating water orb on ISS

Astronauts trap GoPro in floating water orb on ISS

This week NASA posted a video on its YouTube page of astronauts playing with a GoPro and an orb of water they had floating around. Like magic, they trapped the action camera in the sphere of water while it was recording, showing what the world looks like from inside of a water bubble, as well as what a GoPro looks like when encased and floating. As you'd expect, this took place on the International Space Station, and was part of a look at water surface tension as experienced in a microgravity environment.

Dell has Windows, Android devices with 3D cameras slated for 2015

Dell's Venue 8 7000 -- set to arrive later on this month -- won't be the company's only device with 3D cameras, it has revealed.

DynaOptics may have the answer to optical zoom in phones

DynaOptics may have the answer to optical zoom in phones

Smartphone cameras are getting more sophisticated and more capable, but there are just some things that they could not reach that a dedicated diigtal camera can. Usually, this is because of design or shape constraints. After all, you wouldn't want your smartphone to look like camera, unless you actually fancy something like the Galaxy K Zoom. One of those "talents" happens to be optical zooming, but DynaOptics might have just developed a way that will give regular smartphones that same ability without bulking up the camera.

HTC RE camera in orange is delayed

HTC's L-shaped RE Camera, recently announced earlier this month, is offered in multiple colors: navy blue, teal, white and orange. Those who decided to take the plunge by pre-ordering the camera might be in for some bad news (if they opted in for the most popular color): orange is sold out and thus has been delayed. While, in a way, the status is good news for HTC, which is apparently seeing solid demand for the RE, it is bad news for those who were pining to get their camera soon.

Oakley Airwave 1.5 HUD goggles add Garmin camera support

Oakley's Airwave HUD goggles have been refreshed to bring in support for Garmin's VIRB Elite action camera, adding wireless pairing between the two devices for easy integration. Called the Airwave 1.5 goggles, this updated pair from Oakley uses Garmin's action cam to bring a live video feed to the HUD and doubles as a remote for controlling the camera (and it's glove friendly, Oakley promises). By utilizing the camera's GPS sensor, the goggles can also show location information, fleshing out the data available to wearers.
