After four years of development and successful fundraising on the Kickstarter platform, orders for an Apple Watch strap with two built-in cameras started.
The Wristcam strap (previously the project was called CMRA) is equipped with an 8-megapixel main camera to shoot video in Full HD, and there is also a 2-megapixel selfie camera with the ability to make video calls. Why do this from the clock – it is not clear. Although four years ago, when the development began, the idea seemed interesting and relevant.
It looks rather wild: a huge strap with a thickening in part with cameras. But how to wear it with sweaters and sweaters?
The strap is available in several colors for watches with 40/38 mm and 44/42 mm displays. The battery installed in the strap will last for “a whole day of work” 8 GB are provided for data storage. The strap weighs 23 grams.
The first straps will start shipping in March 2021. The camera module costs 299 dollars, and for the strap, you will have to pay another 49 dollars. Crowdfunding campaigners will start receiving their straps before the end of this year.
