If you’re in the market for a GoPro, the Graava might change your mind. What the latter does is, instead of merely capturing a lot of footage, it creates a highlight reel from what is captured.
The Graava is Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled with GPS, with an accelerometer, light and gyro sensors and audio recorder.
It uses all the data it has to help select what it thinks were your most memorable moments. If say your heart rate increases (the camera syncs to Apple Watch to capture heart rate) or something moves fast in front of your camera, the camera will pick up on that.
Your automatically created highlight reel can have custom lengths – 30 seconds, five minutes and so on.
It basically saves you the hassle of having to go through hours of footage, selecting, editing and then exporting it. But you will still have all the unedited footage if you still feel like doing it yourself. But it's not quite perfect yet as the device is still going through some tweaks. It's also only water-resistant and not fully waterproof, which gives the GoPro an edge for the more active set. But the Graava can be repurposed as a baby monitor or home security thanks to the sensors it posesses.
If you think you'd want a Graava in your life, you can preorder one for the promotional price of US$249 before Sept 1 after which it will cost US$399.
