BRG action sports helmets get integrated 360-degree video camera
BRG (Bell, Riddell and Giro) Sports has used CES 2016 to introduce a new line of motorcycle, mountain bike and snow helmets featuring 360fly's proprietary 360-degree 4k video camera.
The collaboration sees the 360fly camera and app integrated into four different BRG Sports helmets – the BellStar street motorcycle helmet, the Bell Moto 9 off road motorcycle helmet, the Bell Super 2R mountain bike helmet, and the Giro Edit snow helmet.
The camera shoots at 2880 x 2880 at up to 30 fps as well as standard 16 x 9 format and the accompanying app is designed for simple editing and sharing. The unit includes a built-in GPS sensor to tag locations, a barometer/altimeter, an accelerometer, built-in Bluetooth and built-in Wi-Fi, and up to two hours of battery life.
The camera can also be detached and used independent of the helmet.
Additional features planned for inclusion in the helmet and camera combo will allow the user to automatically track the action of the main video subjects, sense potential dangers outside a rider's field of vision, live stream video, and auto-edit a 1-2 minute highlight reel based on video sections that have the most action.
Pricing has not yet been established and a release is expected sometime later this year.
