There's no question that social media has a big impact on most of our lives every day. For many, when they are experiencing something exciting, that want to be able to share it with the world. However, the biggest problem with that is it means that you then experience the event through the lens of a camera and the screen of a phone. It would be much better if you could experience the event and share it with your friends. That is exactly the problem that OPKIX is trying to solve.
The OPKIX One camera is small enough that it can be used just about anywhere, from a necklace to your eyeglasses. It is also that small size that makes it so that you can film and experience an event at once. Using some of these accessories, such as the glasses, you can easily record the exciting aspects of your day without having to lose yourself into a camera of a phone screen. Now, you can truly enjoy the thing that you are there to enjoy, whether it be a concert, competition, or conference.
In addition to the design of the camera itself, there are a number of distinguishing features. One of the most interesting is the inspiration that they take from true wireless earbuds. They ship with a docking "egg" which serves as a portable charging station, but there's more than just that. When you're charging the camera, it is also transferring the media from the camera into the egg. That way you only have to have a single device paired to your phone. That's because the package ships with 2 cameras, as opposed to only one, so you can charge one while recording with the other.
The OPKIX One can be ordered now for $295 for the cameras, or $395 for the cameras and a pack of accessories.
