Fuuvi Pick Looks Like a Flash Drive, But it’s a Camera
March 30th, 2011
I’ve certainly seen my share of unusual digital cameras, but this is definitely something I haven’t seen before. The pint-sized (and badly named) Fuuvi Pick isn’t much larger than a flash drive, but it’s actuall a digital camera, capable of capturing both stills and videos.
The tiny camera measures just 1.37″ (h) x 2.75″ (w) x 0.59″(d) and weighs under an ounce. It captures stills at 1280 x 1024 resolution (1.3 megapixels), and can shoot video at 720 x 480 at 30fps. Its tiny F2.8 lens shoots only at ISO 100, but if you’re using this thing for your pictures, I’m assuming you’re not expecting museum-quality images. The very fact that they call these things a “toy digital camera” should have tipped you off.
The coolest thing about the Fuuvi is the end of the camera pops off just like a flash drive, and the camera will dock and charge when plugged into your computer’s USB port. The camera’s storage (a Micro SD card up to 16GB) will be immediately recognized as a drive on your PC, just like a flash drive.
Audiocubes just started carrying the Fuuvi Pick mini digital camera, where it sells for $59.99 (USD). While the camera is made in several colors, it’s not clear if they stock them in anything but black. You’ll want to contact them to confirm.
