GoPro has launched its much-anticipated Wi-Fi BacPac + Wi-Fi Remote Combo Kit, allowing people to control multiple GoPro cameras at a time using either a smartphone, tablet, or the included waterproof Wi-Fi Remote.
Additional features include live streaming video from GoPro cameras to smartphones, tablets and directly to the web via a soon-to-be-released software update.
The Wi-Fi BacPac attaches to the back of GoPro cameras to Wi-Fi enable them. The waterproof and wearable Wi-Fi Remote can control up to 50 GoPro cameras at a time from a range of 600'(180m).
"GoPro makes it easy for people to capture immersive and engaging footage of themselves during their favorite activities," said Nicholas Woodman, GoPro's founder and CEO.
"A new era of personal production has begun and Wi-Fi-enabling our cameras gives GoPro customers even more creative control to capture some of the most meaningful content in the world: their lives".
