I usually don’t like to post Kickstarters unless I’ve seen the merchandise primary however I additionally love dash cams. What was I to do? Luckily VAVA’s was ready to offer a demo unit therefore I will report that this $99 dash cam is real, works, associate degree could allow you to create some clever Russian-style road videos or record conditions before an accident.
Most of the dash cams I’ve seen so much are priced at or higher than $100. The VAVA, which is essentially a USB-powered puck that attaches magnetically to a suction mount, is $99 and can be twisted on the fly to film the within of the automobile furthermore because the road ahead. The kit includes a small wireless button that allows you to take snapshots on the fly and your drive is recorded on a microSD and accessible for transfer via Wi-Fi.
Installation was fairly simple. The cable may be run up associate degree round the visors down along the door frame so it will be obstructed into an enclosed USB adapter or invariably charging battery pack. To view video in real-time you’ll be able to connect with the VAVA’s intrinsic wireless access purpose. The app is still a piece ongoing but appears to figure fine presently. The company aims to ship in June and they’ve already surpassed their goal of $25,000.

For $99 you probably can’t fail with this unit particularly if you simply wish some passive recording on the go or wish to stay track of everybody stepping into or out of your automobile. Because it works each forward facing and rear facing you will have a little of fun with the VAVA, recording a wacky moose offensive your truck in the outback and so grab a video of the family singing Sweet kid O’ Mine.
