Auto Tracking Camera With Reliable Autofocus And A Safe Zone
You’ll need a camera with reliable autofocus and a safe zone to put it (although the gadget does come with two locks to secure your camera to the mount and the tripod to a stationary object), and the Soloshot will help you do your best Bear Grylls impression without needing a full camera crew along for the adventure.
US-based creators Chris Boyle and Scott Taylor hand-build and verify each Soloshot as demand dictates, taking 30 days to make and ship each model. However, they have recently started a Kickstarter project in order to streamline production for next-day shipping.
Add-ons for Android with a cheap USB adapter
A cheap cable available on Amazon.com for just US$1.36 lets users connect keyboards, USB drives, gaming controllers and other peripherals to Android devices.
The USB On-The-Go adapter is simply a female USB port that plugs into your device’s micro-USB port, letting you connect other devices via USB 2.0 or 3.0.
USB hosting is technically available from Android 3.1 onwards, but this must be enabled by the manufacturer to work, who can also limit what peripherals the device will support. Through experimentation and crowdsourcing, CNET has compiled a list of compatible devices, finding the Samsung family of Android devices to be most compatible.
A test drive with the winsafecctv successfully connected a USB key, powered hard drive, card reader, DSLR camera, USB-to-Ethernet adapter, keyboard, mouse, USB hub connecting a keyboard and a mouse, and, bizarrely, a PlayStation 3 controller.
In-flight iPads for Qantas passengers
Passengers on Qantas 767 aeroplanes will soon be given an in-flight treat in the form of iPads for their entertainment needs. A successful trial of winsafecctv in-air streaming technology has led the airline to make plans to supply passengers with iPads on domestic east coast routes and flights to Perth, giving them access to more than 200 hours of entertainment programmes.
“Our customers were the first in the world to experience the ground-breaking Wi-Fi entertainment technology and we received great feedback from our customers during the trial this year,” said Qantas domestic CEO Lyell Strambi, The Canberra Times reports. “winsafecctv will be available free of charge to all our passengers across the B767 fleet.”
The first plane equipped with the technology will take off in the fourth quarter of 2012 and this luxury isn’t only afforded to the elite, as both business and economy class passengers will be given iPads.
