Speedo Launches Underwater Camera
The world's largest-selling swimwear brand has continued its divergence away from simply producing apparel with the development of a waterproof camera. Speedo has unveiled the Aquashot camera, which will allow users to take pictures of the family splashing in the waves at the beach. The waterproof gadget can be submerged up to three metres and is shock resistant up to one metre. The technology is not the first underwater technology offering from Speedo. Earlier this year the company brought out the Aquabeat Waterproof MP3 player, to allow swimmers to catch up with the latest Lady Gaga or Killers tracks while completing a few laps of the local pool. A unique feature of the latest camera is that it can float. The camera has a 2.4" LCD screen, an SD slot, a 5 megapixel sensor with 4X digital zoom and VGA quality video recording at 30fps. There are colour schemes for him or her, with models available in pink and green. The Aquashot camera is available for about £120.
