Trek’s Ai-Ball: The world’s smallest Wi-Fi Portable Remote Camera- Review

Just to refresh your mind on my previous post about the Trek’s Flucard Wireless SD, I am going to introduce now the Flucard complementary invention called “Ai- Ball”, is a device capable of recording both video and audio remotely thru wireless signal.

Ai-Ball was officially announced by Trek and Toshiba in the Press Release held at Singapore. You can also read the whole article here.

Key features and specifications of the Trek Ai-Ball include:
• Video/Audio viewing on PC/Smartphones
• Supports A/V recording through PC
• Video and images up to 2M pixel
• Estimated viewing distance of 20 meters
• Wi-Fi - 802.11 b/g/n
• Ultra small and portable:
o Measures 30mm x 30mm x 35mm
o Weights less than 12 grams (excluding battery)
• Operates on CR2 size batteries with an estimated life of 1.5 hours

Ai-ball is almost a Singpore 50-cent coin in size but it can do continuous streaming up to 20 meters wirelessly with 2MP built-in camera. The device is powered by CR2 batteries that last up to 1.5 hours viewing and capturing. Also can AV recording thru PC.

Ai-Ball could be setup in just 3 steps:
1. Turning on the Ai-Ball
2.1 Connecting with any wireless enabled device, including Personal Computers, Smart
Phones, iPads (No installation software needed, no cables required).
2.2 At the browser, enter Ai-ball.com
3. Start shooting on the go

Ai-Ball was known now as the world’s smallest portable remote Wi-Fi camera and Trek really hoping that this innovation would come across with range of commercial industries someday.
