Matthew Clark has come up with what he is calling the Aeriel Capture camera.
Aerial Capture is a lightweight digital camera with a built-in 3 foot balloon allowing families of all ages to take great playful aerial photos from 20 metres high that are colourful with a stylistic contrast.
How cool would it be to just fire up the old balloon camera and grab some quick aerials at your next wedding reception? People have been strapping cameras to helicopters but those are like spinning blades of death should they crash down on someone. And remember that dude that sent his digital camera into space. Both uber cool but this is the first semi-practical aerial idea I’ve seen anyone come up with.
I say build it Matthew and they will come. (if the price is right)
