Some of our readers might remember the cute owl styled security and surveillance camera called the Ulo which launched on the Kickstarter crowdfunding website earlier this month.
The project currently has seven days remaining on its campaign and has already raised over €1 million thanks to over 5,300 backers who have pledged money to help take the awesome security camera into production.
To recap on the features and functionality of the Ulo security camera watch the video below, which has been created by Vivien Muller and provides insight onto the inspiration and design of this very unique security camera.
Ulo communicates through eye expressions. A webpage and mobile apps allows you to customize eyes color, shape and size to match your interior and your taste. No logos or icons are displayed on the screens, but you instantly know what Ulo has in mind.
For instance, when the battery is low (under 10%) Ulo is tired, Ulo blinks when you take a snapshot, its eyes follow your movements and Ulo squints when someone is watching live video. Random animations add that extra spark of life which makes Ulo unique. Eye expressions are possible thanks to new round LCD screens originally manufactured for next-generation smartwatches.
To make a pledge and make sure that you own one of the very first off the production line jump over to the Kickstarter crowdfunding website where the Ulo security camera is now available to back with pledges starting from €149.
