If you aren’t a big fan of flying drones, consider that more and more of them will
likely be streaming live high-definition video to YouTube.
Taiwan’s Altek is demonstrating a low-cost, lightweight compact camera that can ride on a drone, dashboard or bicycle while sending real-time imagery to the video-sharing service.
The Cubic Live weighs 70 grams and easily fits in the palm of your hand. It’s got a 150-degree wide-angle lens, 16-megapixel CMOS sensor and can shoot full HD video at 1080p with 30 frames per second.
The camera has a noise-cancellation chip to reduce the hum from drones. It can connect with Android and iOS mobile devices via dual-band Wi-Fi. The 940 mAh battery can last about 90 minutes when continuously shooting FHD video, or taking up to 1,000 photos. [FULL STORY]
