Podo is a ‘Stick-and-Shoot’ wireless camera launched on Kickstarter last month, which reached their US$50,000 goal in just 16 hours and exceeded it by 600% in 23 days. Compared with existing selfie photo taking solutions, Podo camera is not only replacing stranger-free photo taking experience, but also is a stand alone “stick and shoot” camera.

The user can simply place Podo on any surface, preview the shot on your mobile phone’s screen and take a picture, video, or time-lapse. The photos are then transferred to your phone via Bluetooth. The camera sticks to nearly anything and works seamlessly with its smartphone app. With its capacity of shooting up to 300-500 photos, the camera can record up to two hours of full 720p HD video, can be charged with a micro USB or via the same cable for Android phones. Besides its slick design, it features 8MP images, eight LED lights, on-board 4GB memory and a rechargeable lithium battery. 

“Podo is the first smart camera on the market that has a mission to put you back in front of the camera,” PodoLabs co-founder and CEO Jaehoon Choi said, pointing out that, “There are similar cameras like Go-Pro, but since they work on WiFi and not Bluetooth, they are not great in terms of live preview and battery life. Our Bluetooth-powered camera allows you to have a live preview option as well as making it easy to track your camera if it gets lost.”
