We knew an Amazon camera was coming. We didn't expect this. The Amazon Echo Look is an Alexa-based hands-free camera that's meant more for styling than it is for security. With built-in LED lighting, a depth-sensing camera, and computerized background blur, it lets you take full-length photos and videos with just your voice. Using the companion app, you can build a virtual wardrobe, and use the Style Check feature — which combines AI with advice from fashion specialists — to get an opinion on what outfit makes you look your best. Of course, it's still an Echo, so you also get all the features of Alexa, from checking the weather to turning off the lights.
It's built for VR, yet the GoPro Fusion Spherical Camera has a lot to offer traditional content producers as well. It captures fully spherical video at 30 fps 5.2K resolution, making it ideal for virtual reality rigs. Thanks to the company's OverCapture reframing solution, you can also crop HD-quality videos and photos out of the raw footage, giving you multiple creative avenues on every shoot. As you'd expect, it's also highly compact and compatible with a wide range of GoPro mounts. Currently available for testing via a pilot program, with a commercial release expected before the end of the year.
