SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) JUNE 05, 2018 – AbleTech’s new Evo GoCam, the first camera that’s stored in a smartphone case and sticks to any surface, has surpassed its campaign goal on Indiegogo – raising more than $50,000 as crowdfunding enters its final three weeks.
“We’re excited that crowdfunders who want to make sure everyone is captured in their photos are turning to the Evo GoCam as the perfect solution,” said AbleTech Founder Mario Bertucci. “Whether they’re streaming from cool angles for action sports shots, or want to take better selfies, Evo GoCam offers the most portable and always-available solution.”
The ultra-slim, lightweight camera slides into a custom smartphone case – featuring a special micro-suction back-plate so the camera can stick to almost every surface without the need for extra accessories.
With Evo GoCam, users can get better group photos and videos, perfectly-framed selfies and shots captured from unusual positions – and it’s ideal for discreet recordings to capture more candid moments.
Bertucci developed the Evo GoCam after the birth of his son Emanuele, when the new dad found he was rarely in the photos and videos he took of his son.
“A GoPro didn’t solve the problem because I never had it when I needed to capture Emanuele’s precious childhood moments, so I realized there needed to be a more versatile camera that was always connected to my smartphone and could work hands-free,” he said.
From there, Bertucci developed Evo GoCam to create “a new eye” for any smartphone that was integrated and extractable, so he would never be without it. Evo GoCam, which slides into the phone case, is light, thin, ergonomic and easy to use – and can stick any surface.
“Using tripods, selfie sticks or leaning a phone against a tree stump are all attempts at trying to fix a fundamental problem with smartphone cameras, which is finding a way to hold the phone steady for pictures,” Bertucci said. “With its adhesive back panel, which sticks to nearly any surface and detaches without leaving residue, Evo GoCam solves that problem for good.”
Evo GoCam can even assist in parking in a tight spot, by attaching it to a vehicle bumper, and it can serve as a lightweight baby monitor. With the Evo app, the GoCam can be used to share on social media, watch recordings, or edit and apply filters.
To use the Evo GoCam, users just turn it on and connect it to a smartphone either via the internet with Wi-Fi, or by using WLAN.
