Lookit this thing! It’ll take video at 1920×1080 by 30 frames a second — broadcast quality, bitchez! — and it’ll do it for 70 minutes on one battery charge. It’s got a 170° wide angle FOV. It’ll record timelapse. It’ll run off USB (dash cam, anyone?). It can be set to motion-activate.

It’s got wifi, so you can drive it with your phone and it’ll send live video back in real-time. The, ummm…invasion of privacy possibilities are staggering.

This one is basically a clone of the GoPro Hero 4 (some speculate it might even be made in the same factory), but you pay about four times more for the GoPro name. Yeah, that’s the one everyone is attaching to drones. The BBC is lousy with drone footage these days.

But enough of the aerial footage porn. You know what I’m thinking — CHIKKEN CAM!

When I was driving big truck, I wanted cameras. Cameras looking in the mirrors. Cameras looking back down the sides from the outside. Dash cams in stereo. Cams on me the driver.

Until I realized that the next vehicle collision I was in, would send me to prison for decades. But I really wanted those cameras. Probably a good thing I didn’t get them.

I love the Russian dash cams.

Take a look at your fellow countryman’s website, techmoan dot com, he’s reviewed quite a few of these

I felt bad for the poor cows in the russian dashcam footage spilling all over the highway. Poor things were probably going off to be slaughtered, but still… 🙁

It’s cheap because they just released the 4K version, I think. I love upgrade time,

Me too. Isn’t Nvidia about to release some drop-dead killer graphics card that’s going to make their last drop-dead killer graphics card’s price do a bellyflop?

I desperately need to prop up this old machine.

That’s how I got the drop-dead killer gp in my current box.

Weird how the gp makers are lining up with proc makers, huh?

I might get one of these suckers to put on my cycle helmet so I can be one of those self-righteous pricks that acts all arrogant on the road, pisses some taxi driver off and then gets his clock cleaned.
