Tiny Wireless Camera Goes Anywhere, Even Underwater
April 29th, 2008
Measuring just 0.7″ x 1.4″ x 0.6″, and weighing in at about 0.5 ounce, this miniature camera can fit just about any place you can imagine. Just charge it up, and it’ll capture full color images and transmit them to a wireless receiver.
RF System Lab’s RC-12 wireless mini cam can send video over distances as far as 30 meters away (about 98 feet). The tiny camera uses a 1/4-inch CMOS chip to capture full color images. The camera’s built-in rechargeable battery should give you about 45 minutes of video on a single charge. The minuscule camera can even capture images underwater when slipped into its included waterproof case. Video resolution is 0.27 megapixels (just about VGA).
While originally available only in Japan, you can now find the $269 RC-12 from the gadget importers over at CScout’s Japan Trend Shop.
