Light & Motion’s Sidekick adds light to your GoPro

Light & Motion’s Sidekick adds light to your GoPro

GoPro makes some nifty little cameras, but their usefulness drops drastically when put up against a low-light situation. External lights are the solution, but if you're using a spotlight or some other secondary battery-powered unit, the odds are it is both inconvenient and less than effective. The folks at Light & Motion are addressing that issue with their new Sidekick light, a rectangular LED light that is design specifically for mounting next to a GoPro camera to function as a complementary flash.

Marriott teams with GoPro to offer guests HERO4 cameras

Marriott teams with GoPro to offer guests HERO4 cameras

No vacation is complete without a camera to record every moment of it, and as such Marriott and GoPro have teamed up to provide guests at select hotels a complimentary HERO4 action cam. This'll benefit guests in obvious ways -- they'll have access to a rugged camera able to handle rough environments, and it'll serve as a way for GoPro to get its tiny action cameras into consumer hands. Marriott, on the other hand, might find a bit of favor in consumer eyes again following it ill-fated WiFi-blocking petition.

The Apple Watch is coming in a few short months, but a new patent granted to Apple details it may work with more than an iPhone.

GoPro, the company that makes a series of action cameras meant to be strapped to your body as you jump off of very high things, is bringing a series of drones to the world, according to a new report. People “familiar with its plans” say GoPro is developing “multi-rotor helicopters” with their own hi-def cameras built-in. These drones will launch next year (late, so in time for holiday shopping), and retail for anywhere between $500 and $1,000.

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.

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.

HTC takes on GoPro: is their cam RE-ally worth it?

HTC takes on GoPro: is their cam RE-ally worth it?

The HTC RE camera is out, and marketed as a GoPro for the rest of us. Can it really topple the dominant GoPro platform, with all its bells and whistles? Both have quite a bit going for them, but the RE has one small thing that is keeping many early pundits at bay. If HTC is really aiming for the GoPro, they may want to handle the pricing a bit. A comparable GoPro can actually be had for a lower price.

Watch: VR drones race like Speeder Bikes in the French Alps

Watch as the Airgonay drone club races their home-made drones fly through the French Alps like Imperial Troops on Endor. This isn’t Return of the Jedi - it’s real life. President of the Airgonay drone club Herve Pellarin showed off their most recent race this week, making it clear that the French are doing things right. Right with drones, right with virtual reality headsets, right with a combination of the two. This is what this technology was made for, clearly.
