SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— Smartphone maker HTC is introducing not only a brand new handset to take sharper pictures, but the first ever action camera. That’s because while a picture is worth a thousand words, the company hopes the cameras that take these pictures will turn into millions of sales.
The Re Camera, as it’s known, is an interesting looking cross-platform device (sort of periscope shaped). It’s a stand-alone digital camera that connects to your Android or iOS device. It sort of resembles a periscope. Interestingly enough there’s no power button. You grip it to turn it on and it has a little button that starts recording in video mode.
