Mokacam is a tiny magnetic and modular UHD camera

The market has no shortage of small cameras, and it can be hard to stand out among the competition. Mokacam has managed to catch the consumer eye, though, and for good reason: it packs a lot of features into a small body, and its functionality can be expanded simply by attaching magnetic modular components. The camera's creator isn't being shy about challenging GoPro's top status, and it has a very success funding campaign to back it up.

Mokacam is cube-shaped, featuring a 16-megapixel sensor and 152-degree wide-angle lens. There's an integrated microphone for recording audio, and a magnet for attaching the camera to metal surfaces. For those who need a little more, there's also a magnetic hinged LCD that can be attached for viewing footage as it records; those who need more battery life can attach an extra battery using magnets, as well.

The camera has many features at the software level, as well. There's a normal angle mode, for example, that removes the distortion caused by wide-angle lenses. The camera can be put into a motion detection mode, causing it to start record when it detects motion, and there's WiFi. Control is simplified with only two buttons.

The folks behind Mokacam were seeking $50,000 USD in funding on Indiegogo, and have so far exceeded that amount with nearly $200,000 USD in funding and 16 days remaining. An early bird unit can be pre-ordered for $99 USD through the campaign; anticipated retail pricing will be $169 USD. Shipping it estimated to start in February 2016.
