HiLO blasts through Kickstarter target
Last month we introduced you to the HiLo, an extension for your iPhone camera or iPad camera with a right angle lens. Driven by engineer turned entrepreneur Mark Hampton, the HiLo basically acts as a rotating screen allowing you to capture new and interesting angles in your photos and videos.
With a week left to go, the project has already raised more than US$29,000 (well over its original goal of $27,500 in pledges) and Hampton has added a stretch goal of $37,500.
With the extra ten grand, he says they'll add a voice-activated shutter option to the accompanying HiLo mobile app.
Manufacturers are being lined up and the HiLo is tipped to start shipping in February.
The HiLO will retail for US$60 (to comply with Kickstarter requirements, Hampton has set up a US-based company).
