The GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac is now available to pre-order from Action Cameras, with the hotly anticipated HD HERO2 attachment due for a summer release.
The BacPac is essentially a device to be inserted to the back of a GoPro camera allowing you to control it via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. In fact, it has the capability to allow control of up to 50 GoPro’s simultaneously, a fantastic feature for capturing multiple riders, drivers, skiers, skaters, or however you want to utilise it.
With full remote functionality from up to 900 feet away, the BacPac permits you to control your camera via the GoPro Remote, or even through your Smartphone or Tablet with the pending GoPro App. Both waterproof and durable, the eagerly awaited gadget is the perfect accessory to further enhance the GoPro’s 1080p potential.
Originally due for a Winter 2011/12 release, the BacPac has suffered several delays, but is now expected to hit the shelves sometime in the summer. Whatever the issues that have forced the delay, the BacPac is sure to be worth the hype, with technology to potentially revolutionise action sports videos and live streaming.
