Last year Polaroid, a company known for their instant-print cameras, debuted a tiny camera called the Cube. The idea was to compete against the likes of GoPro who pretty much dominates the action camera market at the moment. The Cube was nothing to shout about but if you were hoping for more features, Polaroid might have something new for you.
The company has recently announced the Polaroid Cube+ which is basically the successor to last year’s camera. The design of the camera has not changed much and will continue to sport a colorful and sporty look. However under the hood, Polaroid has made some changes such as bumping the megapixels up from 6 to 8.
They have also included WiFi inside the camera which means that through an accompanying app, users will be able to control the camera remotely and use their smartphone as a viewfinder, as well as to receive photos taken by the camera which they can then proceed to edit on their mobile devices.
If the Polaroid Cube+ is the updated Cube that you have been waiting for, it will be available in August where it will be priced at $149.99. Granted it might not necessary pack the same hardware as the GoPro, but it is significantly cheaper if you’re not too fussed about those sorts of things.
