Optrix Wide-Angle makes debut on Kickstarter

Crowdsourcing website Kickstarter have come up with yet another interesting device on display that you can check out – where the device in question is known as the Optrix Wide-Angle. I myself have not quite heard of the name Optrix before, but doing a little bit of research have shown the company to be a designer of action sports video cases. Well, Optrix has gone ahead to announce the pre-order availability of the Optrix Wide-Angle at Kickstarter, which is actually the second generation model of their previous effort that played nice with the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPod touch that hailed from Apple. Just what does the Optrix Wide-Angle case offer? For starters, it will definitely enable those who are of the extreme sports persuasion to be able to safely and easily shoot, edit and upload 1080P videos right from their mobile device without a hitch. The Optrix Wide-Angle will enable users to capture images and videos thanks to a 175 degree wide-angle lens, which ends up with you recording a panoramic, wider viewing area for posterity. Not only that, it is one tough cookie, as it can be bumped around, have water spilled or splashed on it, as well as surviving normal drops (of course, throwing it off from the top of the Eiffel Tower is not going to work any miracles here) , making it the perfect companion device whenever you go mountain biking, skateboarding, or skiing, amongst other physically intensive adventures. John Willenborg, founder of Optrix, said, “The Wide-Angle case is the second version of our popular HD Sport, allowing extreme sport enthusiasts to capture wider pictures and videos without worrying about the safety of their device. We are reaching out to the Kickstarter community by giving them the opportunity to experience the Optrix Wide-Angle before it is available anywhere else.” Press Release]]>
