DIY Steampunk cameraWhen the big name camera makers don’t offer any Steampunk cameras, what do you do? You build your own of course. That’s what this guy did. He built himself a homemade steampunk camera. And it’s more than just a digital camera with a brass case on it.

It’s completely homemade. Which is very impressive indeed. Aside from one obviously plastic piece. It must come in handy for snapping photos of all your handlebar-mustached relatives.

Spycam Lighter CameraThere are so many items that could be spying on us today and we might never know. This one is a video camera disguised as a standard classic style lighter. The only problem with a spy gadget like this is illustrated below.

“Say, you don’t smoke do you?”
“Nope”
“Then why do you have that lighter there on your desk?”
“Oh I just started.”
“I see. Why do you keep pointing it at me while we talk?”
“I’m just fidgety like that”
“When I walked in, it was on the floor. Then you picked it up and positioned it-. Nevermind. I’m being paranoid.”
“What you think this is a camera? You think I’m after some upskirt pics? You’re silly. Anyway, where were we?”

Waterproof ContourHD caseIf you own a VholdR ContourHD or ContourHD 1080p helmet camera, you’ve no doubt dreamed of taking it underwater to capture some sea-life. Or at least in the pool, so you can pretend that you are Jacque Cousteau.

For $39.99 you can do just that with this waterproof case. It will offer protection up to 10 meters below the water level. Additional accessories are also available like a handlebar mount, vented helmet mount and a lens kit. See ya on YouTube my friend.

The First ELSE Phone

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on November 24th, 2009

The First ELSE PhoneThe First ELSE is an interesting mobile phone. The idea is that it’s centered around the user experience, rather than the phone itself. The First ELSE has the phone as an application on the device, rather than being the main function of the device. The camera is the same way.

We don’t yet know which operator will be getting this, but Pocket-lint did spot some representatives from Orange at the event. Target markets for the phone are the US, Western Europe and Russia. They just might be onto something here.

Yes it’s thin and can take a beating. It will survive a drop from 7 feet onto solid ground or a dunk into 10 feet of water. Plus this 12.1 megapixel shooter manages to actually look nice. Look for it in black or red next month for $300.

Polaroid to re-launch instant film next year

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on October 13th, 2009

Polaroid killing off instant film format Seems that Polaroid can’t make up their mind. After killing off their instant cameras along with instant film, they have now decided to get back into the game. At least part of this decision has to do with new management.

Whatever the reasons, they have realized their error and would like it very much if you used their cameras and film. The company is re-launching the One Step Camera and instant film in 2010. That’s not too far off for all of you Polaroid fans. But are you over instant film or do you really want more?

Car Cam Voyager is a Black Box for your car

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on October 4th, 2009

Car Cam Voyager is a Black Box for your carIt would be pretty handy to have a black box for your car, just like airplanes have. That way if you got into an accident, saw a crime being committed or got beaten up by a cop for no good reason, you would have a record of the event.

That’s basically what the Car Cam Voyager does. It acts like a black box. It’s the first video camera for the car that allows you to record what is happening in real time while you’re driving. The device can display captured video on the 2-inch 320×240 screen and can record up to 48 hours of video on the road to a 32GB microSD card.
