timeforcake: Celebrating the big 400

special to the daily

Fifteen years ago, who would have imagined a WiFi-enabled camcorder you could attach to your helmet, an RC airplane or the bad guy’s getaway vehicle? Harder still would have been fathoming the ability to watch your video on your computer without manually downloading the footage. Now that’s cool.

Ion has made both previously-too-fantastic-to-dream scenarios a reality with its new Air Pro camcorder, a smart-phone compatible digital camera the size of a small bike light that films in high definition, takes pics and can connect to your devices using WiFi.

Mount the Air Pro to your skydiving helmet, your mountain bike handlebar or even your jet ski. The Air Pro is flexible and can record video from all angles without requiring you to re-mount the camera.

As Ion proudly points out, “Now your latest ski run can be uploaded to your Facebook page before you’ve even taken off your ski boots!”

1) http://bit.ly/J2VE07 – Is this progress? For people who love solutions to things that aren’t necessarily problems, here’s a docking station with enough room for your iPad and iPhone. Why not simply use two plugs, you ask? Well, if we all thought like that, there would be no cruise control, automatic sprinklers and voice texting.

2) http://bit.ly/KPt3AH – A camera that can photograph stars during the day? Well, not yet. But you could kick some cash and help make it reality if the concept tickles your fancy.

3) http://tinyurl.com/mxvo26 – A helpful little app that turns your phone into a scanner and fax machine. Take photos of signed contracts or memos, and the app converts them to a PDF, so you can keep working while you’re out of the office. Because that’s what technology is here to help us do. Sigh.
