The Helios is a new solar powered body camera harness which allows you to easily capture footage using your smartphone while on your bike, running or engaging in your favourite activity. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the solar panel and its charging capabilities.
Helios is now available via Kickstarter with early bird pledges available from $75 or roughly £58. If all goes well and the campaign is successful and manufacturing progresses smoothly worldwide shipping is expected to take place during February 2019.
The design team behind Helios explain more about the Kickstarter campaign and some of the stages they need to progress through. “While there are always risks & challenges with creating and delivering a brand new product especially something like the Helios Solar Pack, we have already allocated substantial resources to reduce both.”
“We are basically combining two already in existence working technologies, your SmartPhone’s camera and a USB Solar Panel. We have a working prototype, but it is still a prototype. We want to make Helios Solar Pack the best solar harness sling pack available. We’re constantly looking t o make improvements. In this process materials can change, components can change, and these improvements may cause delays. We are confident that we can deliver all products to you on time meeting our high quality standards – you can depend on us, and we will update you frequently to make sure the manufacturing process is as transparent as possible.”
