Soloshot Automatic Tripod Keeps the Camera on You

Soloshot.JPGIf you're into snowboarding, BMX, surfing or any other action sport, you've probably wanted to see yourself do it. If you don't have any friends that are good with a camera, or if you aren't quite yet ready to let someone else see you in action, you'll want to take a look at the Soloshot.

Soloshot is an automatic tripod that records your movements. It does this by tracking an armband that you'll wear while doing whatever it is you do best. You can record speeds up to 140mph and at distances of up to 2000 feet. The maximum angle is 40 degrees.

"We originally created SOLOSHOT to film our surf sessions from the beach because it was difficult to find friends willing to film us having fun for hours," says co-founder Chris Boyle. "We just initiated a Kickstarter campaign that will allow us to set up a high volume production line here in the USA, as we currently hand build each SOLOSHOT individually. As we grow, we plan to continue manufacturing ourselves in the USA - and our Kickstarter project will make this possible"

The Soloshot is available at $349 through Kickstarter and will sell for $479 when it hits retail.
