Shea Kewin, who played with the Ontario Hockey League team for two seasons before being traded to the Oshawa Generals, has created the GoPro alternative.
Throughout the years he’s had quite a few concussions, which he realized were from a lack of awareness of what’s happening around him rather than faulty equipment. So he decided to create some technology to help with awareness on the ice.
The camera is pretty small. It’s 8.5 cm in length and 2.5 cm in height. It’s designed to fit just above the cage of any helmet, or it can be mounted to a headband for any sport that doesn’t involve a helmet. It can record up to 10 hours of video, stores it on an internal SD memory card in 1080p HD quality.
The camera is available online for $200 U.S., retail distribution is in the works. Read more here.
