Earlier last year, Google introduced a new product called Clips, a camera which offers different features based on machine learning to recognize faces, expressions and other surroundings to automatically start recording for users. While we haven’t heard anything from the company for quite a long time, Google has now made the device available for pre-order in the United States.
While you will be quite happy to learn the latest news, you will need to wait several more weeks as the camera will start shipping on March 1st. Back in Made by Google event, the search engine giant revealed that the idea behind the product is giving users ability to capture motion clips as well as images on the move without manual effort. For instance, you will be able to attach the device on your clothing on the way out and it will automatically start recording based on your setting. Moreover, Clips comes with a 16GB internal memory which should be enough for everyone’s needs at the moment.
However, the product starts at $249 which might be pretty expensive given that Clips won’t offer other functionalities. Moreover, the camera doesn’t record sound and has a battery life of only three hours. As a result, we will have to wait and see if the latest offering can attract consumers going forward.
