GoBandit HD Tracks Your Extreme Sporting With GPS

Illustration for article titled GoBandit HD Tracks Your Extreme Sporting With GPS

If you don't quite think you have what it takes to GoPro, now you have another option: GoBandit. This waterproof, GPS-enabled videocam can capture your finest moments in HD and then overlay the footage with location, speed, and altitude data.


In addition to capturing 720p video, you can set the GoBandit to take 5 megapixel snapshots every 2 or 5 seconds. All these extreme memories are recorded onto 2GB of internal memory, expandable by an SDHC card.

The GoBandit's most attractive feature, though, is its ability to augment your video with information on your activity—so when you tell your friend, "I swear I was flying down that hill at 35 MPH," you'll have some hard evidence to back it up.


The GoBandit is currently available for preorder in the UK for $470, though apparently the bandits are hoping to hit a $389 pricepoint when the camera comes stateside. [GoBandit via Engadget]

I could have used something like this yesterday. I hit 53mph snowboarding in Park City yesterday (not olympic speed, but fast for me), though I have no idea on which run.

Until I showed my friends that MotionX was not in fact turned on while I was still in the car, as shown by all the trails being within resort bounds, they didn't believe me. I'd love to know what slope I was on, but not at a cost of $389.

Hey MotionX - write an app for that!
