Some time after the first half of last month, we did bring you word on Kiba, which is a device that has been toued to be the world’s first interactive self-editing video camera. Good news for those who have always wanted something that is deemed to be “dummy proof” when it comes to video recording, as Kiba is now available for pre-order. With Kiba, one will be able to capture and curate one’s best moments using patented “joy ranking” technology, enabling one to enjoy time with family and friends without having to film or edit video. In fact, Kiba happens to be the very first camera you can talk to (as claimed by the folks behind it), where it responds easily to voice commands such as “Kiba, record,” “Kiba, remember,” or “Kiba, selfie.”
According to Raji Kannan, Kiba CEO and founder, “Home is a social place with many special everyday moments. I often find that when I am capturing, I am not in the frame, or by the time I reach for the camera, the magic of the moment is lost. Or I might be away from home, but I don’t want to miss my little daughter’s moments. I have no time to go through hours of video footage and edit the best pieces. We built Kiba to record and share home videos effortlessly with family and friends – it’s handsfree and easy to use. Kiba celebrates life and everyone’s unique stories.”
Not only that, Kiba has also picked up a couple of CES 2016 Innovation awards as a show of its prowess to the masses. Kiba’s claim to fame would be being a CES 2016 Innovation Award honoree in two categories: “Portable Media Players and Accessories” and “High Performance Home Audio/Video.” One can always check out one’s top moments in the Kiba app (available on iOS, Android, and web platforms), before sharing those moments with family and friends in double quick time. Depending on your preference, you can always choose to store moments locally on the Kiba device, or in Kiba’s secure cloud service.
The Kiba is available for pre-orders at $199 a pop, where it will come with a year’s worth of free cloud storage and an easily attachable camera mount.
