Clacton-based safety camera brand Techalogic are about to launch what they say is the first all-in-one helmet camera with dual lens, front and rear recording.
Described as a "bullet style" camera, Techalogic originally aimed it at motorcyclists but say they realised that lots of cyclists appreciated the technology in the testing phase. It's a patented design and Techalogic insist it's a world first.
The video above gives an idea of the recording quality you can expect, and the camera is affixed in the middle of a bracket that sits on top of your helmet. Charging is via USB, with a lens at both ends of the unit.
As detailed in the tech specs above the resolution is 1920 x 1080P, and you'll get 2.5 hours of recording time out of it on a full charge. It also comes with a wireless controller; this can automatically take a photo with the camera button, and you can also press the lock button to lock the current recording file.
The family business are about to launch a new website for the Techalogic brand, but have been trading as Mycrocam UK for the last eight years. Techalogic say the camera will be priced at £179.95 with all mounting accessories included when it goes on sale in four to five weeks' time.
After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since. He joined road.cc in 2017 having previously being Staff Writer at 220 Triathlon magazine, and reports on all things tech as well as editing road.cc's live blog. He is also the news editor of our electric-powered sister site eBikeTips. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
