After four years of development and successful fundraising on the Kickstarter site, orders began for an Apple Watch strap with two built-in cameras.
The Wristcam strap (previously the project was called CMRA) is equipped with an 8-megapixel main camera with the ability 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 the part with cameras. But how to wear it with 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, and the strap costs another $49. Crowdfunding campaigners will start receiving their straps before the end of this year.
